In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of NWA, this film tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionised music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Thirty years ago The Angels were kings of the Australian rock scene. Eight and a half years ago lead singer Doc Neeson was involved in a horrific car accident and was forced to leave the band. One year ago he and the rest of the original members were talking through lawyers in a bitter legal battle over naming rights. And then Doc's manager David Edwards had an idea. Instead of tearing each other apart, why don't they just put the band back together again? That was the start of an uncertain journey as the five original members Doc Neeson, John and Rick Brewster, Chris Bailey and Buzz Bidstrup began to re-discover the magic which made the legend.
