The drama deals with real people, seen through the eyes of young Ponyboy, a greaser on the wrong side of life, caught up in territorial battles between the have-it-made rich kids – the Socs – and the tough, underprivileged “Greaser” family.

While the Socs appear to have everything, the only thing a Greaser has is his friends, as these young people try to find themselves and each other.

As the sadness of sophistication begins to reach them, many relationships reach a resolution.
