In the wake of Larry Clark's hugely controversial Kids and Bully, Wassup Rockers follows a group of Latino teenagers in South Central Los Angeles who, instead of conforming to the predominant hip hop culture of their gang infested neighbourhood, wear tight pants, listen to punk rock, and ride their tricked out skateboards. Avoiding the violence of their dangerous home turf is an everyday challenge. The Rockers decide to travel by bus to skate the world famous "Nine Stairs" at Beverly Hills High School. There they meet some local girls, attracted to the 'punks' from the ghetto, but the day quickly goes bad. They're hassled by rich boys from the neighbourhood and ousted by the Beverly Hills Police. Trying to escape arrest by the police and fighting local kids, the Rockers run from house to house and yard to yard in this wealthy foreign world looking for a way to get home. Heavily charged with erotic energy, this is an action movie with wild chases through LA and a powerful rock soundtrack.
