Synopsis by Mark Deming
Produced in association with the publishers of F.E.D.S. Magazine, a streetwise journal that prints the bitter truth about crime and gang life in urban America, this documentary examines how the magazine came to be, as well as presenting onscreen versions of some of the most powerful stories from F.E.D.S. F.E.D.S. features segments on the origins of Los Angeles' most feared street gangs, the Bloods and the Crips; a visit with notorious hustler and street basketball legend Pee Wee Kirkland; the truth about pit bulls, in which we see how the animals are bred, raised, and trained to fight in underground competitions; and a trip to Kingston, Jamaica, to investigate the island's most feared criminal gang, the Jamaican Shottas.
