Two boyhood friends, Rocky Sullivan and Jerry Connolly have taken different paths in life. After Rocky is arrested he is sent to a juvenile facility and becomes a lifelong tough guy and criminal.

When Rocky is released from prison he resumes his criminal lifestyle and becomes much admired by many of the local kids.
