It's 1947. The Brooklyn neighborhoods are still in the Depression. August comes and Christmas must follow for two gangs, the Central Avenue Boys and the Palmetto Street Tigers.

Tommy Boy, the block's most ferocious tomboy, and Dutchy Moran are two best friends and members of the Central Avenue Boys. When the leader of the Comanches starts looking for new recruits, they and their friends find themselves under pressure to take his offer. Father Klein and Parker F. Wessels are there to help.

Then, as if by God's will, a blizzard brings the resourceful pair a chance.
