In Lima, Ohio, there lies two families: the Evans and the Puckermans. Each family has a boy, Sam and Noah, respectively. When they were younger, the two got along no problem. However, that quickly changed. You see, William Puckerman and Richard Evans were once very close friends. Business partners, even, for a successful car dealership. But one day, when William realized that his sticky hands (as he was dealing with much fraud behind Richard's back) were going to get him thrown into jail, he decided to screw over the man that was his closest friend. Instead, Richard was arrested for embezzlement, and his sentence was 50 years in jail.
This tore apart the Puckerman and Evans family, causing a family feud between them all. Sandy Evans and Kate Puckerman were once close friends, as were their children, but now they are sworn enemies. At least Sandy still has Richard's brother, James, to help her raise her son.
Fast forward 8 years, and now those two boys are 16 and attending McKinley High School. Come see how they all interact, with scandals, friendships, romance, and rivalries.
