The needs of teenagers in an isolated planned community called New Granada, east of Denver, Colorado, were not considered by those who designed the community, and their approved activities are to attend school and hang out at the recreation center, which closes at six o‘clock.

The kids turn to drink, drugs, sex, vandalism and other petty crime to kill their boredom, but the adults are too concerned with their careers and business interests and focus on curbing the adolescents' seemingly senseless behavior through a 9:30pm curfew rather than understanding the root causes. After one of the kids is killed by a police officer, the youths violently rebel.
