Angel, a young gang member is approached and questioned by two Police Detectives about a recent gang altercation. During the interview he discovers that a younger gang member, his protege, has been murdered. Angel struggles with the realization that his actions possibly caused his young friend’s death.

The police officers help Angel realize that he has been manipulated by the older gang members and that like them, he has done the same to the younger murder victim. He is put in the position of ending the gang cycle by “giving up” his gang boss in exchange for his freedom OR staying true to his “brothers” and taking the wrap for the murder.


In 2015, my innocent 14 year old son, named Patrick was murdered when he was caught in gang gunfire. His perpetrator, only 20 years old at the time of the murder, will now spend his life in prison…falling even deeper into gang life. My family’s life was shattered. The family life of the perpetrator was shattered. I believe that no one wins as a result of gang conflict.

When I realized that the perpetrator had been lured into a gang at just 13 years old, I began to wonder what his life could have been like had he not joined the gang. What made him join? Why did he not see the darkness in gang life? His young, pubescent, “know it all “ mind did not see it because he was expertly manipulated by an older, trained gang member. He was taken advantage of and brainwashed into believing the gang “was his family and had his back.” Sure to the cycle of gangs, he was doing the same to younger boys.

This film was produced for young men who have already crossed over into gang life and have done bad things. My hope is to help them realize that they were not born “bad.” They were manipulated into gang life and that it is never too late to turn your life around – no matter what you have done in the past.
