New York in the 1980s was a city tormented by violent crime. But despite the violence some found room for creativity. Hip hop culture was in full bloom and a group of young graffiti artists became famous for their determination to keep the subway trains colourful despite the city's zero-tolerance policy towards graffiti. They became known as the infamous RIS crew, waging a war with the city's authorities. As a result, they took over New York with style, becoming one of the world's most influential graffiti crews. This is their story.
