Teen rivalry in a small Southern town sets the stage for this dramatic interpretation of the novel by S.E. Hinton. The Outsiders tells the story of the ongoing conflict between the Greasers and the Socs in rural Oklahoma. Ponyboy is the youngest of three orphaned boys who pal around with the local hoods known as the Greasers. When Ponyboy and his friend get into a deadly confrontation one night, the two go on the run from the cops, and they grow up quickly and soon realize the insignificance of their petty posturing.
