To survive in his rough neighborhood of Washington, D.C., teenager Lucas (Elijah Rodriguez) joins the powerful, fast-growing MS-13 gang. But when the gang leader (David Castañeda) begins using his 10-year-old brother Miguel (Nicholas Sean Johnny) to sell drugs, Lucas attempts to break ties with the gang, but they won't let him leave alive. The boys find an unexpected ally in their new neighbor Daniel (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a troubled Afghanistan war veteran who finds renewed purpose in protecting them.

Very shocking movie showing MS13 gang reality in US. Well represented and done. It was interesting to see Van Damme play a role without uttering a single word. I like him as an actor so I purchased the movie and added it to my collection.
Impressive story, the acting, the editing and the music. Gripping story and a great look at what it's like living in a neighborhood controlled by MS13. Jean Claude nailed his part and never actually speaks a single line.
