Pat Boone is cleanly cast in a well-suited role as a minister on a mission to rid the streets of delinquents. A young Erik Estrada (of TV's "C.H.I.P.S." fame) is Nicky, the streetwise gang leader, who acts as receptacle for Boone's moralistic backwash. The film is intended for a

location in New York City.
