In Desperate for Love, Christian Slater plays Brian, a college student who falls in love with an attractive and popular classmate named Heather, played by Tammy Lauren. Although Heather is already in a relationship with a fraternity brother named Chris, played by Brian Bloom, Brian is determined to win her over. One day, Brian invites Heather to a party at his fraternity house, hoping to impress her with his charm and wit. However, when Heather arrives, she is immediately put off by the raucous behavior of the fraternity members, including Chris, who is jealous of Brian's interest in Heather. Heather decides to leave, but Brian convinces her to stay and dance with him. The two share a passionate moment, but Heather ultimately decides to leave with Chris, leaving Brian heartbroken.

Brian becomes obsessed with winning Heather's love, and begins to stalk her, following her to her dorm room and leaving gifts for her. Heather is both flattered and frightened by Brian's attention, and tries to distance herself from him. However, Brian continues to pursue her, even going so far as to break into her room and hide under her bed while she is sleeping.

As Brian becomes increasingly unstable, Heather begins to fear for her safety. She confides in Chris, who decides to take matters into his own hands and confront Brian. In a dramatic showdown, Chris and Brian engage in a physical fight that leaves Chris badly injured. Brian is arrested for his actions, and Heather realizes that she never truly loved him.
