This provocative social drama centers on a rambunctious band of teen-age thugs who have taken over the swimming pool atop a Buenos Aires Apartment building. There the punks engage in boozing, sex and general mayhem; the residents try to stop them but cannot as the thugs have taken the young granddaughter of the super hostage. In the evenings, the tenants rally together and raid the party. A major scuffle ensues and the hapless child is tossed from the building. Fortunately, though seriously injured, she is not killed.
