John, a police officer, and Carlos, a gang member, agree to trade places for a day. John experiences harassment from the police, threats and taunts from rival gangs, and frustration when prejudice prevents him from applying for a job. Carlos learns a policeman's uniform gives him power, draws confrontations, demands he stay calm, and requires him to deal with death. Each gains new insights into the other's life. NOTE: Profanity in the audio has been censored.
