Description by OLDIES.com:
From executive producer Tony Bill (The Sting, Taxi Driver) comes a gritty and groundbreaking look at Los Angeles gang life in the city's Mexican-American barrios, a powerful forerunner to such later movies as Colors and Menace II Society. Raymond Avila (Richard Yn~iguez) is an ex-gang member trying to build a future. Kid brother Chuco (Danny De La Paz) is a sullen low-rider still caught up in the life. Despite their differences, their family bond is strong. But that bond is violently tested when rivals challenge Chuco's gang - and ignite a neighborhood war. Experience a movie judged "honest, authentic, dramatic and effective" by the Los Angeles Times' Charles Champlin. Hit this Boulevard."
The story of a young Latino boy striving with his girlfriend to escape the cycle of neighborhood violence, as his intense brother gets drawn deeper into it.
