Set on the streets of Venice Beach CA, VICIOUS CIRCLE is a raw, edgy, modern day, teenage "Romeo and Juliet" Latino love story.
RJ (Paul Rodriguez) an artist and skater who dreams of moving to New York City to pursue his aspirations to create comic books, meets his first love Angel (Emily Rios) a rebellious singer in a local teen age punk band.
