Presenting "Light It up", a movie about a group of teenagers who want to improve their high school that is in shambles. These teens must try and turn their school around before it is too late and everything turns upside down. The students just might go too far in this radical movie, and ruin any chances they have of their school being salvaged. This movie is about faith and hope in a school of education that plays a role with your child and their views on the world around them. Having school that is ran with respect and built on a solid foundation shows a child that the community cares in their educational development.

This school is known for not enough classrooms, teachers coming and going like the wind, and school resources being scarce and unavailable. Six students decide to take matters into their own hands to better the school and end up in a draw with the NYPD. After a favorite teacher is temporarily let go, the students break out in protest. When the security guard on duty decides to take charge, he ends up getting shot with his own gun and taken as a hostage by one of the students. In the meantime, a police officer tries to make peace talks with the six students while a plan of action is being discussed on how to get control of the situation. During the negotiations, the students cry out for changes to the school, claiming they want to take it back and make it into something great. Soon, the media latches onto the story and suddenly the security guard turns soft, wanting to side with the kids. At this point, too many events are going on, and may corrupt future plans for the school.
