American Me (1992)
Santana soon murders a fellow inmate at juvenile hall and has his sentence extended into prison after he turns 18. In prison he becomes the leader of a powerful gang, both inside and outside the prison. He is finally released. Once out, he tries to relate his life experiences to the society that has changed a lot since he left.
The gang he formed in prison and now still leads has become a feared criminal organization, selling illegal drugs and committing murder. Santana starts to see the error in his ways, but before he can take action is sent back to prison for possessing drugs that, ironically, were not his. In prison, he tells his former lieutenant, J.D., that he is no longer interested in leading the gang.
However, in following a precedent set by Santana himself earlier in the film, the gang members in prison murder Santana to show that they are not weak.
