Blood spilled on the asphalt of this town long years gone has left a stain, and it s spreading. Not that a thing like that matters to teenagers like George, Hector, Paul, and Andy. It s summer 1983 in a northern California suburb, and these working-class kids have been killing time the usual ways: ducking their parents, tinkering with their bikes, and racing around town getting high and boosting their neighbors meds. Just another typical summer break in the burbs. Till Andy s bike is stolen by the town s legendary petty hoods, the Arroyo brothers. When the boys break into the Arroyos place in search of the bike, they stumble across the brothers private industry: a crank lab. Being the kind of kids who rarely know better, they do what comes naturally: they take a stash of crank to sell for quick cash. But doing so they unleash hidden rivalries and crimes, and the dark and secret past of their town and their families."
