Prominent gang leader Cyrus calls a meeting of New York's gangs to set aside their turf wars and take over the city. At the meeting, a rival leader kills Cyrus, but a Coney Island gang called the Warriors is wrongly blamed for Cyrus' death. Before you know it, the cops and every gangbanger in town is hot on the Warriors' trail.
The Warriors and their Native American-themed vests look mild compared to many of the other gangs; The Baseball Furies are probably the most iconic characters in the film with their bizarre combination of baseball uniforms and brighty-coloured face-paint, though other gangs include the all-female Lizzies wearing tie-dye shirts and denim or the Turnbull A.C.'s and their skinhead punk aesthetic.
