The drama is set in 1982 at the dawn of the Regan era, and forty-eight hours in the lives of Dennie, Warren and Jessica - three rich and bored middle-class teenagers from New York's Upper West Side. Caught up in the new yuppie culture (for which money, power and success are all), they have stolen $15,000 from their parents without much of an idea of what to do with it. So, without a care for the consequences, they blow it all on a reckless, hedonistic spending spree!
