Summary
Challenging stereotypes, this documentary gives voice to the street youths and reveals their underground culture. Here is an intricate web of symbols and passions, territory and brotherhood, honor and, all too often, death. Images of street bravado are counterpointed with scenes inside laundromats where gang members are folding clothes and playing with babies. The violent death and funeral of a Guatemalan street youth stir up the deepest feelings and most haunting questions about both the vulnerability and the heroic ethic of gang life
