ABOUT THE FILM:
Caine is a high school aged gangbanger who wants out of L.A.’s violence, drugs, guns, and death. As a child, Caine witnesses his father kill a man for no good reason and sees his mother die from a drug overdose. Growing up, he takes an older man from the neighborhood on as a mentor only to see him arrested and sent to jail. By high school age, Caine is dealing drugs, and his intimidation skills and nihilistic indifference to the social detriment of his lifestyle have earned him some street cred. MENACE II SOCIETY’S central dilemma: Caine wants out, but is he too far in, too caught up to see the alternatives?
