      John Singleton writes about childhood friends who grow up in the slums of Los Angeles, USA. The gang violence that ensues and the death of friends and family caused by this inner city gangwar.

      warfare between communities. This situation could have gotten way out of hand if Jason didn’t stop Tre from making the biggest mistake of his young life.

      This movie has alot to offer in regards to leadership and community development for the violence to stop. Only people can make that change. This is a stirring movie-documentary for all to see and learn from.
