The show revolves around two different lifestyles that clashed repeatedly. On one side of the tracks was the wealthy Malibu crowd, and on the other was the more working-class gang of “the Valley”. When Zack from the Valley meets Chloe from the Malibu beachfront, they fall in love; but no one thinks it is a good idea but the two of them. After their “love-at-first-sight” meeting, Zach is transferred to Chloe’s school along with his friends (due to an earthquake). The remainder of the episodes dealt with the clashing of the two groups.
