Benny, a half Black, half Mexican teenager, is awaiting a letter from the court to find out if he'll be sent to an affluent neighborhood to live with his father. But before the letter arrives, he's extorted by his mother's boyfriend. Now he has to sell drugs to keep his addicted mother out of prostitution. The only thing is, he doesn't know how. Only his street-smart Chicano friend Indie can help out. To finish the shob, the two attend a backyard punk show in South Central LA. But when things go wrong, Benny comes face to face with the LAPD in an uncomprimising situation.
