Directed by
Tony Kaye

It's the present day and the place is Venice Beach, California.

Derek (Edward Norton) and Danny Vinyard (Edward Furlong) are brothers who have been brainwashed by the sick mind of a right-winged man.

He teaches them that they as part of a community are being exploited by people who do not deserve to : illegal immigrants, whatever colour they may be.

The hatred within them grows until Derek murders a black youth for the reasoning of pure hate and blood thirst.

However while serving his sentence in prison, Derek has his eyes opened and realises the mistakes he has made and the mistakes in the teachings he received.

Now released Derek is a completely different person to what his long-suffering family remember and now he must retrieve his younger brother, Danny from the clutches of the truly sick - those who had him blindfolded against the truth.
