Plots

Based on a true story, a troubled and racist African-American L.A.P.D. Officer will stop at nothing to force out a friendly interracial couple who just moved in next door to him.

In California, the Caucasian Chris Mattson and his African-American wife Lisa Mattson move to a house in a gated community. The racist and dysfunctional next-door neighbor is the abusive LAPD Officer Abel Turner who feels uncomfortable with the relationship of the newcomers and transforms their lives into Hell on Earth. - Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Ecstatic, the newlywed interracial couple, Chris and Lisa Mattson, move into their first home in Los Angeles' Lakeview Terrace: a cul-de-sac of beautiful residences. Of course, the newcomers can't wait to start afresh; however, a brief first encounter with their next-door-neighbour--the intimidating LAPD police officer and embittered racist, Abel Turner--suggests that this is going to be a difficult, if not impossible, coexistence. More and more, Abel takes great pleasure in pushing the unsuspecting couple's buttons--his artfully unfriendly remarks will rapidly lead to an ugly all-out confrontation triggered by a regrettable incident in the backyard pool. Now, in Abel's eyes, Lisa and Chris don't belong to Lakeview Terrace. Will Abel have his way? - Nick Riganas
