Inspired by the actual police riots on Hollywood's Sunset Strip, at one time a hangout for hippie youths bearing protest signs. Ray is a police captain caught between businesses operating on the Strip who don't like the punks hanging out, and his belief in allowing the kids their rights.

But when his daughter, Farmer, gets involved with an unruly bunch, his attitude starts to change. Farmer, whom he hadn't seen for four years because his alcoholic wife took her away, has returned to Los Angeles, and she hooks up with Rooney and friends to avoid her mother's dreary household. One

night when the kids are bored with the happenings at Pandora's Box, they break into an abandoned mansion. They do some wild partying and take LSD, the unsuspecting Farmer getting some in her drink. The boys can't control themselves and take Farmer, unable to control herself, into the bedroom for a

gang rape. The girl is brutalized and must be taken to the hospital emergency room. An enraged Ray goes after the boys individually, using only his bare hands to get revenge. Realism is achieved by injecting footage of police cars cruising the streets during the actual riots, and music from two

cult bands, the Chocolate Watch Band and the Standells, is added for the proper flavor.
