Isaac (Tony Sancho) and Angel (Michael Cortez) are rival Chicago gang members harboring a secret that might get them killed. The two young Latino thugs face daily life-and-death choices as they battle for control of the streets, but the greatest challenge lies in keeping their love for each other hidden from their warring brethren. This tender, unconventional look into defying urban stereotypes is based on Tadeo Garcia's award-winning short film.
