John Singleton’s celebrated chronicle of three friends growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood follows Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky’s best friend Tre (Cuba Gooding Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond South Central. In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have different approaches to coping with their bleak surroundings. Tre’s resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Laurence Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems like the only recourse.
