ABOUT THE MOVIE

This documentary examines the neighborhoods of South Los Angeles; home to two of America’s most infamous African-American gangs, the Crips and the Bloods. It blends gripping archival footage with in-depth interviews. Hard-hitting, yet ultimately hopeful, the film not only documents the emergence of the gangs but also offers insight as to how this ongoing tragedy might be resolved.
