Garrett Modi (Kal Penn) was living the American Dream.

As the youngest New York City Councilman ever, he was rubbing elbows with the political elite, attending star-studded parties and was the pride of Queens.

But instead of spending his time in office helping the people that got him elected, he lost his way amidst the power and glamour of politics.

When his downward spiral got him busted for public intoxication (and downright stupidity), it was all caught on tape and ended his career.

Now, Garrett's crashing with his sister, Mallory, and wondering where it all went wrong.

That is, until he's hired by a diverse group of hopefuls who dream of becoming American citizens and believe he can help - giving him a new sense of purpose and a chance for redemption.

As long as he remembers where he came from.

BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00
Genre: Documentary, Music

BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky

Record-shattering Korean girl band BLACKPINK tell their story — and detail the hard-fought journey of the dreams and trials behind their meteoric rise.

Since their debut in August 2016, BLACKPINK has become the highest-charting female K-pop group of all time with their innovative music, eye-popping music videos and internet-breaking fashion concepts.

BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky serves up the never-before-seen moments that BLACKPINK's global fandom — known as "BLINKs" — have been craving for years.

The documentary goes deep with each of BLACKPINK's four members: Jisoo, the whip-smart unnie ("big sister") of the group with a quirky sense of humour; Jennie, the rapper whose fierce onstage persona contrasts with her soft-spoken nature; Rosé, the dulcet-voiced Australian coming into her own as a singer-songwriter; and Lisa, the dancing queen whose spark plug personality never fails to make her bandmates laugh.

As BLACKPINK continues reaching new heights in their career — from headlining sold-out world tours to becoming the first female Korean group to perform at Coachella — each member reflects on the ups and downs of fame and the long, often challenging journey that brought them to worldwide success.

BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky reveals the relatable, unfiltered sides of the foursome, who continue to be a leading force in expanding K-pop's popularity, proving that music knows no borders or language barriers.
