Randolph Kret wrote and directed this subculture drama exploring skinhead gangs. The gang-rape of Sam (Elexa Williams) triggers her suicide. Her boyfriend Steve (Damon Jones) finds the legal system inadequate, so he plots revenge by infiltrating the gang. To gain entrance, however, he must embrace the very attitudes he despises. Once inside, he gains a better understanding of the factors behind the neo-Nazi movement, but eventually he's put on the spot and must choose between committing murder or revealing his cover. The Scott Grusin score includes songs by Minor Threat. Shown at the 1998 Slamdance Film Festival.
