Date

Summary
Shows how intelligent probation can change a boy's attitude and conduct.  In company with his gang, Johnny steals a car, which is wrecked during the excitement of their get-away.  What might have happened to the boy is realistically portrayed in a sequence of vivid police and prison scenes. What actually happens to him in a good juvenile court with well-organized probation service provides a stirring contrast.  A plea for youth and justice.
