Life in the safe suburbs of Christchurch isn't dangerous enough for Marty. He needs excitement in punk, protest, politics and crackpipes. Marty soon finds Mona, a teenage runaway living in a flophouse of skinheads and goths. The two of them live for drugs and dodgy deals but they are minnows compared to siblings Jade and Shayna. Meanwhile, war has broken out among the bikers Marty and Mona depend upon for dope. Fueling the fight is 'King Kong' Chong, a thug determined to be Number One. Swimming between the sharks is Winston, Marty's baby brother, who has big plans to get himself a big reputation. When he gets in over his head, it's up to Marty to try and pull him out of a neo-Nazi nightmare before their family becomes a target.
