A hard working, young football player in school, Steve believes in charity and humanity as essential factors for life. While he engages in voluntary community service with his best friend Willy (Dalpre Grayer), their friendship depicts honesty and purity. Amidst personal challenges of fight between his parents and pressure to perform in school, as Steve believes in God’s faith, he strives to radiate kindness and happiness to those around. Introduction of an extreme candidate for Congress Franklin Bauman (Jon Gries) in Steve’s district adds twist to the tale as he chooses to influence his voters with theme of religion. While he promotes himself for the elections, he plays with the faith of people, warning them against negativity of abortion, homosexuality and sexual morals. By spreading negativity, hatred, discrimination and bad will among the district people on the basis of God’s words, Franklin hopes to win power and position for himself.

Along with his best friend Will, as Steve strives to send his message to people, he believes in spreading positivity all around. Though he is too young to contest in the elections, he works hard to pass the right message to the masses. With help from the most popular girl in school, while Steve and his ‘Pass the light’ movement turn into a big sensation, they hope to help each other and bring happiness to the society. Instead of talks and speeches, Steve and his force speak through their community service acts, spreading goodwill all around.
Powerful storyline and realistic acting are the two shining features of this movie, as each of the characters have done justice to their roles.
