Fourteen-year-old Victor has just been released from the hospital after barely surviving being shot. His mother accuses him of being a cholo, something he denies, but she's not the only adult that thinks he's a gangbanger. His sociology teacher sent him to a teach-in on gange violence, and other kids think he's in a gang. The truth is, he loves death metal, reading books, and drawing, but he can't seem to overcome society's expectations of him.
