Rusty feels trapped in his life and yearns for freedom and adventure. He rebels against his strict guardian, Mr. Harrison, and makes friends with a group of local boys. He also falls in love with Meena, a girl from a different social class, which causes further tension between Rusty and Mr. Harrison.

Rusty's desire for freedom eventually leads him to run away from home and live with his friends in a makeshift room on a rooftop.
