Synopsis

In 1940s Los Angeles, members of a Mexican-American gang, and their leader Henry Reyna, are accused of murder. Although there is insufficient evidence for a fair trial, they are convicted and sent to San Quentin prison. While part of the defense team continues to fight against this misjustice, one of the prisoners copes with his anger by inventing the alter-ego "El Pachuco," a zoot-suiter who exemplies machismo and voices his rage.
