Kids from affluent area are bored and acting out in "gangsta" role playing. Some of the girls wind up partying in an actual gang part of town and they're excited by the unknown ways of their new acquaintances. Two of the girls want to join the gang and the initiation is sex with however many guys a roll of dice shows. The girls change their minds in the bedroom and trouble follows. This is drugs, booze, hip-hop and teen stupidity. Anne Hathaway and Freddy Rodriguez give good performances. Sad story.

"Havoc," like most Indie movies of the early 2000s is an epic story of the rich slumming it with the poor. Anne Hathaway plays a playfully dangerous girl who finds that the penultimate thrill is to go south and into the dusty parts of the Little Mexican Underground to fool around with men, clash with race and station, and in the end, find herself in the most unlikely of places and truly discover who she is. A graphic depiction of the untimely world we live, "Havoc" is a great Indie-scene find.
