Insightful and inspiring, Us Kids tells the rousing coming-of-age story of a generation of youth leaders who set out across the country, and the globe, to build an inclusive and unprecedented movement to address gun violence. Sparked by the plague of gun violence ravaging schools, Us Kids follows the “March For Our Lives” movement over the course of several years, as its co-founders, survivors, and a group of teenage activists organize the largest youth protest in American history.

 

Told through a deeply personal lens, Us Kids allows viewers to see this group of driven, resilient, empathetic individuals as they see one another—as “normal” kids—while they bravely navigate the personal consequences of their remarkable choice to dedicate their lives to honor the fallen and influence public opinion.
