Storyline

In April 1992, following the notorious Rodney King verdict, the streets of Los Angeles became a battlefield, the backdrop to four personal intertwined stories. In Gold Mountain, Jeff Lee and his parents run Good Neighbor Liquor in South Central L.A. Theirs is an Asian family of "old world" values at odds with a modern world-cultures that are about to clash in ways they never imagined. In Caught in the Fever, a day at the mall for Manuel Alvarado, the eldest son of a poor Hispanic family, and his girlfriend Iris, spirals into a nightmare as they're drawn into the out-of-control frenzy of a violent afternoon. In Homecoming Day, Turner Coates returns to the South Central hood of his youth to visit his mother - a homecoming overshadowed by an inescapable threat. In Empty, Boomer Phillips and his fellow LAPD officers are in a South Central restaurant when Boomer receives the command from his dispatcher to get out of South Central-but the command comes too late. Boomer's already in too deep... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Excellent merging of characters
31 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

This movie is about the L.A. riots stemming from the Rodney King incident. The movie is about how the four predominate races interact with each other during these riots. The whites, blacks, hispanics, and asians are the races involved. The way the director mingles the characters together at certain times is outstanding. For example in one scene you see 3 hispanics arguing, and in the background you see a police officer being surrounded by many people, and he is defending himself. Later, on the police officer's skit at the end he is in the same scene. A must see.
