Teen Jimmy Stark (James Dean) struggles to find an identity in the face of a nagging mother and a spineless father, getting into knife fights and other trouble. After a tragic, lethal car race, he meets up with generally good girl Judy (Natalie Wood) and geeky, needy Plato (Sal Mineo) and the three form a surrogate family of sorts. Of course, the bad boys are still after them, and the evening ends in tragedy.
