Turn It Up is an explosive contemporary drama about a gifted musician's struggle to rise above the crime-plagued urban streets and realize his dream. Diamond ("Pras" of the Fugees and Mystery Men) is unwittingly drawn into the world of drug-running by his childhood friend Gage (rapper Ja Rule, Backstage). The sudden death of Diamond's mother, and the untimely pregnancy of his girlfriend, force Diamond to make hard choices about his life and the people around him. His estranged father (Vondie Curtis Hall, Eve's Bayou, Gridlock'd, T.V.'s Chicago Hope) re-enters Diamond's life looking for reconciliation. Diamond devotes himself to his music and finds support and true inspiration in unexpected places.
