Based on both the original Sol Yurick novel and Walter Hill film, The Warriors follows a streetgang as they try frantically to get back to home turf after being framed for the murder of New York's biggest gang leader.
In the not too distant future, society has broken down and the class divide between rich and poor has grown so wide that crime and corruption have left New York City a murky battleground between fascist pig cops and streetwise gangs.
Cyrus, leader of the Grammercy Riffs wants it all; he already has the fame, the power and the respect but what he doesn't have is the wealth, the stately home and the real opportunities that come with it.
All he needs is the army and knowing that the collective gangs of New York City far outnumber the Police, he organises a truce and a meeting in the Bronx.
But Cyrus is assassinated and the Warriors framed for his murder by the leader of the Rogues. What follows is a desperate fight to get from the Bronx all the way back to Coney Island. The only trouble is that every cop is looking for them along with the most dangerous gangs on the Riffs' network!
