Jake consiguió por fin su licencia de manejo y esta noche además puede usar el auto de su hermano. Junto con su amigo Mickey, Jake sale a pasear en el auto. Cuando desafían a otro conductor a una carrera callejera, una desastrosa reacción en cadena provoca un accidente. Jake y Mickey abandonan el lugar y tratan de convencerse de que son inocentes. Pero Jake no puede simplemente hacer como si nada hubiera pasado y se siente muy confundido. ¿Tendría que tratar de olvidar lo que pasó o debería ir a la policía?

Jake has finally got his driver's license, and tonight he has his brother's car as well. He and his friend Mickey take the car out and cruise the strip. When they challenge another driver to a street race, a disastrous chain reaction causes an accident. Jake and Mickey leave the scene, trying to convince themselves they were not involved. Jake finds he cannot pretend it didn't happen and struggles with the right thing to do. Should he pretend he was not involved? Or should he go to the police?
