In gang-war ravaged Chicago, a stray bullet from a night of fighting leaves a young girl dead.

 

 

Based in part on the Greek classic Lysistrata, the women from the warring sides refuse their partners sex in pursuit of an end to violence – or, as chanted in the film, “No peace – no pussy” and “Save our babes”.

chi-raq-banner-600The nickname of Cannon’s gang leader, Chi-Raq, is a reference to the unfortunate statistic that in Chicago gang-war related homicides exceed the death toll among American Special Forces in Iraq.
