Product Overview

This is not a preachy kind of tale about faith; itas about a teenage couple living in a rough inner-city ghetto who find Jesus Christ as Lord through dance. Greasers with moral values in the summer of 1953 in an era when street fights were commonplace, Rose and Dean are cool as they try to survive a dangerous neighborhood. Dean is gang leader of the younger 10th Ward kids who fight with zip guns, switchblades, Garrison belts, and chains when he has to. Rose fights, too, but looks for a better life. These teens offer nice role models as junior high schoolers in love, despite the adversity in struggling with rival gangs, police harassment, racial tensions, and messing around in a railroad yard beside the state penitentiary as one of their hangouts.
