Storyline

Six teens who were traumatized by child abuse early in their lives come together to form a gang that ultimately plots revenge against the ones who committed the crimes against them. The gang leader (Harley Smith) is the only one who has something of a normal life, living at a hotel where he is an apprentice and friends with the managers (Roy Hudd, Jeanie Drynan) who are like surrogate parents to him. However, when the others start to attack their tormentors, Smith is drawn into the conflagaration also. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Well made, powerful drama outgrowing its low budget
31 March 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A first time feature for the majority of crew and cast, the focus is placed upon a young group of homeless or out-casted teenagers as they gang together to inflict revenge upon their abusers of past and present. Roy Hudd is excellent as the friendly father-figure, but full credit must be given to the young cast, most of whom are first time actors, who tackle the difficult content and subject with maturity and dignity.

The low budget only adds to the strength of the piece, giving it an inherent grainy, and often dirty feel.
