Teenager Luke has moved to the city from a small village - and has become a small fish in a big pond. He's fascinated by rumours of the Crockers, the mafia-like family who rule the area and whose trademark is a white hat.

Little does Luke know, but his girlfriend, Carmen, is actually a Crocker. Carmen is trying to get away, and to stop her brother, Ben, from stealing cars. Gradually, from his involvement with Carmen, and his finding of the Crockers' cache of dodgy cars, Luke gets pulled into the world of the Crockers. At one point he's even leading a double life as their cousin Louis!

But Luke is very much his own person; he manages to sort out what he wants from life and to start heading in the right direction.
