Der vierzehnjährige Ponyboy Curtis lebt allein mit seinen älteren Brüdern Soda und Darry, seit die Eltern bei einem Autounfall ums Leben gekommen sind. Ponyboy ist ein Greaser - so nennen sich die Jugendlichen aus den Slums der Großstadt, die einen endlosen Kleinkrieg gegen die arroganten Socs aus den wohlhabenden Familien der West Side führen. Dieser Krieg hinterlässt nicht nur sichtbare Wunden, sondern auch Narben auf der Seele: der nervöse Jonny hat panische Angst vor den Socs, seitdem sie ihn brutal zusammengeschlagen haben. Als Pony und Jonny eines Abends von einigen betrunkenen Socs überfallen werden, dreht Jonny durch und ersticht einen der anderen Jungen. Mit Ponyboy flieht er aus der Stadt und versteckt sich in einer alten Holzkirche. Dort kommt es zur zweiten Katastrophe: Beim Versuch, einige Kinder aus der brennenden Kirche retten, wird Jonny schwer verletzt. Dass die Greaser die Socs in einer großen Schlacht besiegen, ist für Ponyboy nun nicht mehr so wichtig. Durch Jonnys Tod beginnt er zu verstehen, wie sinnlos Hass und Gewalt tatsächlich sind.
