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 movie bout 2 girls in a gang and the outcome of being in one
19 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

i really do like this movie its my favorite it is so realistic no matter what other people say it is and i think there should be more movies like this because a lot of people can relate to this type of movies but thats just my view of this movie but even though a lot of people mite not like it. its based on actual things many young Latino people go though its better than those movies where the main person is a white chick and she gets a happily ever after which a lot of people don't get to have one, and a lot of teens are join gangs these days also so this movies shows what real gang life is like almost though for some its better and others its worse it varies on the gang and the person but i say this is a great movie or at lest thats what i think , truthfully this is my favorite movie of all time and all movies i would defiantly recommend this movie, but i would recommend it to people like me, i just think there needs to be more movies like this one , with this theme and Hispanic actors it just better
