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.
