Two young boys are attacked by three bullies who steal their bikes, but nothing is done because the local prosecutor has suddenly vanished. The police refuse to act without his approval because the three bullies are from influential families. When the prosecutor is found murdered, the boys land in the middle of a murder investigation and are the victims of more attacks from the bullies. When lies are told to protect the bullies, the town youngsters have no alternative but to adopt the underhanded methods used by the bullies and their parents. The population is divided into warring camps as tension mounts to solve the murder, stop the bullies, and prevent the town from tearing itself apart. Which side will win, and will the murder be solved?
