Jackson and his crew square off with Dap Dunlap’s Mission College gang in a KFC parking lot. In a classic conflict between locals who don’t like outsiders encroaching on their territory, and brash college students who drain a small town’s resources from September to May, resentment boils over to the point that blows are nearly thrown. However, what begins as a proverbial pissing contest between two stubborn groups of men eventually uncovers something more insidious that lives in college classrooms and local hangouts alike: self-hatred.
