Explores the culture of Chicanos in the 1940's in Los Angeles, largely through an interview with Jose Montoya of the Royal Chicano Air Force. He describes aspects of Chicano culture such as the zoot suit, sex roles played by men and women, the emerging image of the Pachuco as gangster and the eventual rise of racial violence. Ends with a look at present Chicano culture and how Chicanos are working to recapture their past, which has been largely written out of history books.
