Storyline

Kata has lived her first fifteen years believing that, although she has an amazing ancestry, the only thing that lies in her future is a broken heart, the symbol of the Ninth Street Gang. She and her lifelong friend Ana are two of the toughest members of their gang, fearing nothing but the loss of each other. Car-jacking, fights, and running from the cops are a daily routine as the girls fight to protect their territory and their reputation. Performing as "Outrageous Chaos" in local dance contests provides their only relief, but each night they must return home to the sad reality of their lives. Written by Bill Savage <bill@mjmpost.com>

great
28 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie was one of the best movies I've seen yet... you people write bad reviews because you don't know what its like to live like the girls in this movie. it has a positive ending but in real life half of these people end up dead... so don't hate because you thing its stupid try being a real gangster and live life how we do before you start with your negative remarks. I'm glad that they make movies that show how people live there lives with out sugarcoating it. and about the dancing...it was either steel or make money some how right?? at least they were not prostituting themselves.well i recommend this movie to any one who wants to see the truth about girls in gangs.
