Some friends are closer than brothers, for Raymo, Alfonso and Danny that's all they know. Growing up in an L.A. barrio (neighborhood) is a daily struggle for survival all on its own. But life on the streets will soon make all three of the boy's realize, there are consequences that follow with the choices we make. The story also revolves around "Big Joe" a cholo (mexican gangster) ex-con just released from prison, and returning home once again. But this time with two strikes on his record and a third one will send Big Joe back to prison for life. Written by

I dont know why so many people on this site knock this film, though some
aspects were seen in other hood movies. but who cares? its the quality of
movie that counts and this one was, to me, an al-list. i thought Raymo was
interesting with his dilemas, Alfonso funny with his hillarious
and Gramps scary with his protrayal of the drug dealer. It helps if you
past the negative aspects of the movie and focus on the good ones, than
you'd enjoy it, just lay back and relax then take it like a man!
