Rita Fecher and Henry Chalfant direct this intimate documentary portrait of gang life in the New York Bronx from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. Set against a backdrop of uprooted families, cultural alienation, drugs and violence, the development of gang culture was not an entirely negative force; in fact, these 'families' often had a stabilising effect on the community, enabling the youths to cope with their troubled environment.
