Menace II Society (1993) plot summary
The story follows a young man (Caine) in the city streets of L.A. Despite numerous attempts by Caine’s Grandparents and Caine’s friends father (Roc) to gear him in the right direction, Caine makes wrong decisions due to the more dominant and negative influences in his life (his homeboys lead by the character of Larenz Tate). The audience is left with the inevitable “what if” feeling at the end of the movie. Sometimes, just because Caine wants to do the “right thing” doesn’t mean that he ends up doing so.
