Two Chicano brothers, Estaban and Raul grow up hard on the streets of Los Angeles. Their papa gets executed for a drug deal gone bad when only seven years old. Half Irish, half Mexican gangster named Mickey Solis takes the two boys in and brings them up as lieutenants in his family business. Mickey orders Estaban and Raul to negotiate with deadly Chinese mobsters to prevent a blood bath on the east and south sides of Los Angeles. Mickey tells the two young men, if they don t succeed in stopping the violence between the Chicano and Asian gangs, the blood will not stop flowing. Wu King, a genius martial artist who has an entire army of ruthless criminals to back him up, decides to take Mickey's challenge. It's a mistake for both sides to enter the war as the odds are no one will get out alive.
