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>

Living The Life
2 January 2005 | by chancey187See all my reviews

I think the movie was good because it shows how we gang banger really are and for those who dislike the move its cause you peeps don't understand what goes through are mind or why we get in, in the 1st place. another reason I like this move so mush is cause the did shots at my aunts house it was Anas house in the movies (the one that was San Antonio Tx) remember. But mush love for the people who came out in the move. And when you decide to make another movie like that hit up my e-mail you should know it. Because you could probably use my aunts house again and maybe ya'll will consider letting me be in it I could show you actresses to acted more like a gang member.Lol.
