    • Synopsis
    • Streets of Legend is an exhilarating, character-driven exploration of love and betrayal set against the illegal and multiethnic car-racing subculture of Southern California. Director Joey Curtis paints a classical and yet urgently contemporary urban myth of youth rivalry, love and war. Inner city player Chato, a first generation Guatemalan-American growing up in the hood of Crenshaw, Los Angeles, realizes the cost of infidelity when he opens the door for two star-crossed lovers. Chato's childhood sweetheart, Noza, possessing the grace and innocence of a Mexican-born princess, falls in love with Quattro, a white street racer from the desert, who races down the same two-lane blacktop as his father before him. Their relationship sets the stage for a bitter vendetta in which all parties compete for the highest stakes. Driving this narrative with fantastic imagery, Curtis elevates ordinary teenage experiences of friendship and romance to the stuff of folklore. And though the sounds are louder and the cars are faster, older audiences will recognize that "Streets of Legend" may well be the grandchild of "American Graffiti."
