Freddy and his mates are troublemakers, picking fights amongst each other and with strangers.

Can the level-headed sibling prevent the imminent disaster?
Insecure teenagers defying their parents and rebelling against a society they perceive as authoritarian and narrow-minded, and outsiders with no legal way of making a living, drifting into a life of crime – more than 60 years after its first screening this fast-paced classic has lost none of its relevance.
