Us Kids

They were just regular high-school students – playing sports, studying for finals, goofing off, dancing, and dreaming. And then, on February 14, 2018, in just seven minutes, everything changed. In the aftermath of the nightmarish shooting that took 17 lives, the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida became something else: traumatized, angry, and imbued with unalloyed purpose. This remarkable film follows the teens on their journey of political activism and growth after the indelible shooting in a coming-of-age story that manages to be equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful.
