Summary
"Crash" tells interlocking stories of whites, blacks, Latinos, Koreans, Iranians, cops and criminals, the rich and the poor, the powerful and powerless, crashing against one another other like pinballs in contemporary Los Angeles. They are all defined in one way or another by racism, all victims of it, all guilty of it. The way they all leap to conclusions based on race ensures that they will learn things--mostly about themselves--and pay a price for that knowledge. In the end, they are better people because of what has happened to them. Not happier, not calmer, not even wiser, but better
