Violence is a way of life for many young gang members in this film. Gun-toting kids, brutal, close range killings, drive-by shootings and a boy who is run down by a car are all depicted along with the discussion of the boys’ past crimes and drug dealing. Even in incarceration, fistfights and intimidation continue between rival gangs. The script is peppered with infrequent sexual comments, moderate and strong profanities as well as sexual and racial slurs.
