Danny Jones (William Halop) is a young offender who wants to sow discord in a club where the young people of the city meet together during the hard years of the adolescence. Jones enrolls the people under 20 years to organize a robbery.
Marilyn has a small part in this movie : she is the waitress of the bar where the bad boys meet. One of the young people is murdered. Danny is under arrest. Instead of the complicated disclosures about his childhood, his real origins and the existence of a troth, he is convicted of life imprisonment.
