Summary

To date, more than a hundred young men from the South Asian community have died in gang-related violence in Metro Vancouver. This documentary examines the root causes of gang violence through the story of Jagdeep, a Grade 10 drop-out and ex-con who carries the reminders of his gang experience mapped across his body in the form of bullet wounds and machete scars. A steady pattern of escalation pulled him deeper into the criminal underworld until, he says, “I guarantee it…I was gonna be dead.” His experience is a stark rejoinder to 15-year-old Tanvir, a slender teenager whose life is a free fall of violence and alienation. Eighteen-year-old Vicky, who is struggling to graduate from high school, refuses to even talk about his past for fear of retaliation. This film focuses on the experience of two young men and the people who are fighting to help them resist the deadly lure of gangs.
