The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

After some juvenile delinquents are caught stealing sporting goods, "Big Town" reporter Hillary Brooke (as Lorelei Kilbourne) coerces boyfriend, and "Illustrated Press" managing editor, Phillip Reed (as Steve Wilson) into taking responsibility for the gang of five, during their probationary period. Mr. Reed coaches the young men in a basketball team called the "Big Shots", and covers their human interest story in his paper. But, leader-type "Big Shot" Stanley Clements (as Tommy Malone) is tempted by underworld types. Can Mr. Clements, Darryl Hickman (as Harold "Skinny" Peters), Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer (as Frankie Sneed), Roland Dupree (as John "Pinky" Jones), and Tommy Bond (as Waldo "Dumb Dumb" Riggs) stay out of reform school?
