Kathy, a sheltered and sensitive teenage girl comes of age when her small sleepy suburb is turned upside down with the mysterious appearance of The Ghosts, a hell-bent greaser gang who emerge from a trash pile in a junk yard at the outskirts of town. After Kathy falls in love with Frank, the tough yet thoughtful leader of the gang, she is forced to stand up to the conservative town, her jealous ex-boyfriend, the Church and her Father in order to protect Frank, The Ghosts and her own emerging identity.
