Juniors dad and uncle are talking about moving into the city. The reason for this is because his dad has to get closer to work. The other reason for this is because he needs to go to a better school where everybody isn't in the same two rooms.
When Junior goes to his Catholic school he gets confronted by a boy named Chango. Chango tried to trip Junior but Junior saw that coming and so he stepped on his foot. After that Chango caught Junior in the playground and demanded a fight .
After Junior earns Chango's respect, they and their crew walk together everywhere. They always walk together through enemy territory. The rival gangs are the Settlers and the Cowboys. When their gang goes to watch movies they see Zorro. In this part, they talk about how Zorro is only played by Americans.
When a new person moves in Junior and his gang already hates him because he is not like them. When Chango tells them to charge at them the kid blinked in a watery face and looked at them in fear. The kid escaped that day and that's what made him a true enemy to Los Indios.
Later after the kid escapes Junior finds him again. But this time they interact longer than last time. When they talk their moms get into this hate Junior has for this. They tell them to resolve this by going to the movies together.
When they entered the theatre they saw Junior's crew. Junior lied to them that Denver(the American boy next door) was a Native American. The gang became skeptical of the boy. Before the movie, Junior hated Denver, after the movie they became friends. Junior now learned not to judge people on their looks.
