Plot Summary

Goodhearted teen Scotty (Tom Laughlin) just wants to spend time with his girl, but her disapproving folks break up the young lovers' relationship. Scotty grows despondent but bumps into fellow youngsters Cholly (Peter Miller) and Eddy (Richard Bakalyan), who cheer him up with their mischievous ways. They induct Scotty into their band of hooligans, but the group's harmless rock-'n'-roll-fueled antics quickly give way to violent rumbles at drive-ins, and Scotty winds up in major trouble.
