This film draws urgent attention to Belize’s gang crisis that has violently traumatized Belize City and exposed the black on black crime that has marginalized Belize’s black men. It documents the intervention program by activists like Abdul Marin Nunez and his work inside Belize City’s most dangerous gang enclaves, as well as the first gang intervention work in the southern districts of Belize where the gang problem has also spread.
