The Suedes are a gang of skin head toughs in a grimy Scottish industrial town. They live for "the bovver" vicious fighting with other skin heads. An American conscientious objector to the Vietnam War is assigned to serve at their community center hang out. This indomitable idealist reaches out to the gang, but only seems to cause more violence.
