Sparked by the plague of gun violence ravaging their schools, Us Kids chronicles the March For Our Lives movement over the course of several years, following Emma Gonzalez, Samantha Fuentes, its co-founders, survivors and a group of teenage activists as they pull off the largest youth protest in American history.
