Enrique is a wannabe actor who joins a Hispanic gang to get into character for an upcoming low-budget gang film. He survives getting beat up to see if he can take it. After surviving his final initiation and being accepted, he is struck by a cadaver thrown off an overpass by a rival gang, causing a skull fracture and fatal brain hemorrhaging.
"Aspiring actor Enrique wanted a part so bad, he immersed himself in gang life, but it was just pretend until that big O.G. in the sky yelled Cut! That's a wrap, homie!"
