World-weary Tondo throbs to the beat of hip-hop and freestyle ‘gangsta’ rap and to the scents and sensations of drugs and sex and violence. We witness this crepuscular underworld through the eyes of ten-year-old Ebet. We follow him as he witnesses the deadly lives of teen-age gangs, the “tribes” in Tondo and the events that lead to their explosive confrontation.

As the clock ticks towards midnight, guns are loaded, and knives are sharpened. Only one thing is certain: this is a battle nobody can win.
