Set in 1960s Oklahoma, teenagers have divided themselves into two gangs, Socs ("soashes") and Greasers from the lower end of the economic spectrum. Socs attack two greasers, Johnny and Ponyboy, nearly drowning Ponyboy in a public fountain; Johnny ends the fight by stabbing to death the attacking Soc. To avoid the law they run off to live in an abandoned church. A rather melodramatic adaptation of S. E. Hinton's classic novel, poorly paced but still quite watchable.
