A cop comes upon high-adrenaline race on the L.A. freeways.
This is an exploration of the classic and modern urban myths of the West Coast set inside two of the most emotionally volatile subcultures in Southern California: hip-hop and illegal street car racing. First, there is the inner city player Chato, a first-generation Guatemalan-American growing up in the hood of Crenshaw, Los Angeles. Then, there is Noza who possesses the grace and innocence of a Mexican-born princess and who falls in love with Quattro, a white kid from the desert with the heart of an old-school street racer. This classic union sets the stage for a bitter vendetta in which all parties compete for the highest stakes. By mixing factual stories with fantastic imagery, ordinary teenage experiences of friendship and romance become the stuff of folklore.
