Chicagoan Nick Conover received a suspended sentence for being caught joyriding in a stolen car, with his driver's license suspended indefinitely. Nicky's problems are seen as running around with the wrong crowd. Nicky's sentence is predicated on him living at the run down Kentucky horse farm of his Aunt Henrietta and Uncle Jed Bruce, who he hasn't seen since he was a child. The judge figured this more wholesome environment would get Nicky away from his bad influences.

Car-racing in Central Kentucky? With music, no less?
Set in Central Kentucky, we find bad boy Pat Boone(!) as a juvenile delinquent sent to his uncle's farm for rehabilitation. Along the way to recovery he meets Shirley Jones, and gets involved with drag-racers. If this film were made in the forties, we'd see Mickey Rooney riding horses for Walter Brennan. Still, this film is a pleasant time-filler. Pat of course sings the title song, and he and Shirley have a fine time singing at the cook-out.
