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>

awesome and timeless movie
23 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the type of movie for hugging up on the couch with you best friend or you group of friends and just kicking back to enjoy together its a beginning to end movie that leaves you feeling just the way the Kata must feel and feeling all the way through the victories and losses the girls go through as if they were your own well written well played and the choice of actors was head on like they were made for the roles they play so mt over all review is excellent... my favorite character is Kikicho (Jay Hernandez) he is the exact way i would depict my own best friend. so grab some munchies and a couple sodas and curl up for a great movie and a sure timeless classic in my own opinion and i cant wait to see it again definitely something i recommend to everyone
