pedal pushers. At the heart of the story is the romance between greaser, Danny
Zuko, and new girl, Sandy Dumbrowski. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status
and still make Sandy his girl? Experience the friendships, romances, and
adventures of a group of teenagers navigating the complexities of high school.
