Jake Harris is a muscular, football fanatic from an oil family in Horseshoe Bay, Texas and Rob Harmon is a troubled, long-haired surfer kid from San Diego.
One day while taking a short cut through and alley they are approached by a homeless man who makes them an unusual and speculative offer- a treasure map Although highly suspicious the boys accept the man's deal.
