The movie offers never before seen footage of gangs, active gang member testimonials, and interviews with the newly formed police agencies that were made to stop them.
"COLORS" Delves into the gang epidemic that plagued South Carolina from 2000-2010 when Gang Violence was at an all-time high. During this time period South Carolina was ranked 1st in Violent Crime for 10 years in a row. In 2007, South Carolina had more murders than California and New York by population.
