In this hard-hitting examination of inner city life from the producer of the award-winning Teen Files and Scared Straight series, John, a law enforcement officer, and Carlos, a teenage gang hanger-on, trade places for a day. With his gang, John faces taunts and threats from another gang, prejudice from the public when he tries to apply for a job, and harassment from law enforcement officers, even though he's done nothing wrong.

At the same time, Carlos struggles to control his anger while dealing with confrontational gang members and seeks to comfort and aid the victims of violence. The worst moment of his day comes when the corpse of a gang shootout victim is found to be carrying his own ID and his partner has to tell Carlos' parents their only son is dead.
