Original Gangstas | 1996
It's been 15 years since John Bookman left hometown Gary, Indiana to coach a pro LA football team. In his absence, the city's mean streets have only gotten meaner. Over the years, the steel mills shut down, local businesses closed up and the decent people of Gary have had to face a new menace. A dangerous gang of criminals called the "Rebels" are thriving in Gary and tormenting its residents. The Rebels' involvement in a tragic drive-by killing sets the stage for a winner-take-all throwdown between the gang, Bookman and a few locals who have their own scores to settle. Bookman created the Rebels 30 years ago, when it was a rocks-and-bottles protection gang. He now knows that they must be destroyed. Bookman and his crew may be old school, but they are Gary's original gangstas. It's time for the '90s Rebels to re-learn a piece of history and discover who has the power to bring order and respect back to their hometown.
