Light My Fire

The film, titled "Light My Fire," is a 1960s period piece that follows a teenage girl named Betty who is excited to meet her boyfriend Peter's parents for the first time.

Betty storms out of the house after Peter fails to defend her, which pushes her to become more involved in the women's liberation movement.
