Plot Summary
This brutal and shocking documentary delves into the gang activity in Cité Soleil, an extremely impoverished and densely populated neighborhood in Haiti's Port-au-Prince metropolitan area. The film focuses on two brothers, 2Pac and Bily, leaders of rival gangs whose blood ties may not be enough to keep their relationship from degenerating into violence. The brothers' feelings towards each other are further complicated by their involvement with a French relief worker named Lele.
