Juan Garcia (Johnny Ortiz), a boy on the threshold of manhood, living in a gang-controlled neighborhood, is wrongfully accused of a crime he did not commit. His uncle, Manny Garcia (Danny Trejo), an ex-5th Street Muertos shot caller, now turned actor, sacrifices himself by agreeing to do one more job for the gang in an attempt to save Juan. Aware of the judicial system’s hardline stance against gang affiliation, Angie Garcia (Maria Isa Perez), Juan’s older sister, a would-be law student, engages the services of war-torn defense attorney Alan Hartford (Lawrence S. Smilgys). Juan’s is life now in the so-called, “blind scales of justice.” Alan fights an upward battle against a judicial system that profiles those born on the wrong side of the street.
