Teenage small-time crook Tommy McGrath (Frank "Junior" Coghlan) and his best friend, Fats Moody (Edward Arnold Jr.), get involved in a robbery that is broken up by the police. Tommy and Fats escape and hop a train, then take to the road, where they encounter the Civilian Conservation Corps and join under assumed names. Befriended by Joan Marshall (Florine McKinney), Tommy considers mending his ways and becoming a ranger -- until circumstances intervene, and he is falsely accused of a crime.
