Gilbert Brown, Jr., Fia Perera and John Knox star in this gritty urban drama. Michael is a young man who dreams of a career as an artist, but he finds little encouragement growing up in New York's Crown Heights district, where crime and drugs run rampant. One day, Michael finds that the drug problem has sunk its claws in even deeper than he imagined - one of his teachers is dealing dope to students. Michael isn't sure if he should expose his teacher's wrongdoings when he meets Judy Burke, a television reporter who could bring this story into the open. However, Judy has issues of her own, and soon she and Michael find they have more in common than they imagined, as they work together to bring positive change to the community. Raising The Heights features a hip-hop score, including tracks from Public Enemy, Method Man and Erik Sermon of EPMD.more
