Haunted by his experiences in the Korean War and consumed by grief over the death of his beloved wife, Walt Kowalski has become bitter and jaded towards everyone around him, including his two uncaring sons, Mitch and Steve. The old coot has no time for his Asian next-door neighbours, whom he labels "swamp rats". When Hmong gangbanger Spider and his four-strong posse scrap with neighbour's son Thao on his front lawn, Walt intervenes with a threat to use his M-1 rifle. Spider and co flee vowing revenge to the delight of Thao's older sister, Sue, who goes out of her way to strengthen ties between the two households.
