Step Up 2 The Streets

Synopsis: Following the death of her parents, teen-aged Andie West is living with her mother's best friend, Sarah. Andie, who doesn't care about school, is trying to figure out where she fits in in life. The only thing she loves is dancing with her street crew, the 410, led by Tuck. The 410 are the most notorious of the street crews in Baltimore and are wanted by the police for their acts of vandalism and public mischief. Sarah threatens to send Andie to live with relatives in Texas unless she cleans up her act, which includes ending her association with the 410 and trying harder at school. Andie's neighborhood friend, Tyler Gage, convinces Andie to audition for entry into the Maryland School of the Arts (MSA), an institution which ended up turning his life around for the better. Andie passes the audition but isn't sure she fits in there. The school's director, Blake Collins, isn't sure she fits in there either. Blake is a brilliant dancer but looks for conformity to his way.

I remember the first time

I saw someone move

like they were from another planet.

I couldn't keep my eyes away.

When I was little my mom

took me to watch a jam session

in the neighborhood.

It started out small, but word spread.

Soon, some of the best dancers

around were showing up

to compete in something

they eventually called, "The Streets."

It became the hub, and

I got a front row seat to history.

I wanted to glide and spin

and fly like they did.

But it didn't come easy.

My mom would tell me,

"Don't give up, just be you,

'cause life's too short

to be anybody else."

She was right.

When I was 16 my mom got sick.

Within a couple of months,

she was gone.

And everything changed...

...including The Streets.

Shh. Shh.

Suspects jammed it.

- They went up the stairs.

- Sir, are you OK?

Yo, the Four-one-oh

killed it again, man.

That was sick, son.

Thank you very much.

I'm a genius.

If you do say so yourself.

Girl, get out of here.

Get that mask off.

Yo, we gonna get some

serious YouTube play, son.

Come on, let's go.

We gotta get to the spot

before everybody gets there.

Oh, man, we struck gold

with this. Look at that, D.

This is off the chain.

Boards are gonna go crazy

over this one.

- Yo, let's upload this stat. Not it.

- Not it.

Aye. Why it gotta be me?

- 'Cause you're the youngest.

- And, obviously, the slowest.

Girl, stop slinging

that Spanish at me, Telemundo.

- Aqu-qu-qu-qu-qu-qu-qu.

- Aqu-qu-hell!

- Gotcha.

- Oh, Jesus, Tuck!

Oh, man, wish you could see

the look on your faces.

- Can the jokes, son.

- So what did you guys think?

On the real?

- We killed that!

- Oh!

Oh, yes!

Lucky, lucky!

Streets ain't gonna be ready

for us this year.

- Finally.

- Let me see that. Let me see that.

- Give us my camera back. Give me here.

- Go, go, go, go.

So what's up?

We going out tonight?

I don't know. It's just...

It's been a crazy time,

at home with Sarah and all.

- Yeah, I heard that before.

- Yo, Tuck!

Come on, man, we bouncing.

- We gotta go. You're lagging.

- All right.

- I'll see you at rehearsal.

- OK.

This video, posted

on the Internet just hours ago

was taken earlier today.

Depicts the most recent in

a wave of public disturbances

plaguing the streets of Baltimore.

The notoriously elusive Four-one-oh

has claimed responsibility

for this morning's attack

that both defaced public property

and shut down

the Charles Center Station

over security concerns.

Police have been tracking

this troubling trend,

and sources

close to the investigation...

- Not so fast, Andie. Get in here.

- Andie!

We've got to talk.

I can't believe you.

- Dinner was an hour ago.

- Sorry, Sarah, bus was late.

I'm here, so just chill out.

Baby, you go on upstairs

and go to bed.

OK.

I know where you been.

It's all over the news.

So don't stand here

and lie to my face.

You realize you could

have been arrested?

It wasn't a big deal.

You have no idea.

You've got to take

responsibility for your life.

You can't follow

the Four-one-oh forever.

Those people are criminals.

I'm putting my foot down.

This has got to stop. Now.

No! No, the Four-one-oh

is the only family I have left.

Who are you to tell me

how to live my life?

Your mother was my best friend!

I told her that

I would be your guardian.

I promised her that

I would take care of you

so you wouldn't have

to leave your life here.

But you won't let me.

Instead, you skip school.

You're out all night.

God only knows what you're doing.

I can't do this.

Your Aunt Alice and I

have been talking.

- You can't live here anymore.
