Jesse Borrego and members of the Latin Hip-Hop crew DarkRoom Familia star in this hard-edged story of life in the barrio. Crooked, Sir Dyno and Drew are three friends from a Hispanic ghetto where crime runs rampant and life is cheap. Someone is murdering many of their friends from the neighborhood; they realize they can't fight the killers all by themselves, so they recruit a local "veterano" for help. Directors Jose Quiroz and Ed Quiroz also helmed DarkRoom Familia's previous direct-to-video release Penitentiary Chances.
