Former gang leaders in Los Angeles unite to stop the violence they once helped create. Shot over the summer of 2013, this feature documentary follows the men and women with a ‘license to operate’ as they risk everything to break the cycle of gang-related retaliation killings and rebuild a sense of hope in their communities.
