A violent gang of teenage miscreants terrorize their city with a rash of cruel practical jokes, vicious assaults, and random vandalism. When one of the hoods threatens an upstanding young man named Doug (Rodney Bedell), the gang's leader Dexter (Ray Sager) nixes the fight. Some time before, Doug came to Dexter's aid during a street brawl, so he feels that he owes him a break, but only one. Doug isn't intimidated by the gang and doesn't shrink from a confrontation when he catches them bullying a group of children. With Dexter's obligation met, the gang begins a campaign of harassment that targets Doug's girlfriend Jeanie (Agi Gyenes), and the violence quickly escalates beyond control.
