SLC Punk! is an independent film that looks into the lives of best friends Stevo and Bob whose nickname is Heroin Bob. Bob is named Heroin not on accident because he does not believe in any type of drugs. The two best friends are considered punks and enjoy themselves while partying and challenging other groups like rednecks. Stevo takes his liberal attitude from his rebel parents who are not conservatives. Stevo's father is a successful attorney and follows the rules. Bob's father on the other hand is a drunk and has amounted to little or nothing. The punk community consists of men and women living their lives day after day in a drunken drug daze. Stevo rethinks this lifestyle after running into an old friend Sean who attempted to kill his mother while under the influence of drugs. Stevo has feelings for Sandy, but in their society no one is exclusive and Sandy starts having sex with other men. Stevo finds himself enraged with Sandy's actions. He savagely beats the man in which Sandy was having sex with. Stevo then meets a wealthy girl named Brandy. Brandy addresses Stevo's lifestyle and again Stevo reconsiders leaving his lifestyle of being a punk behind him. Bob continues to party and is given some pills at a party for a headache which leads to an overdose and ultimately Bob's death. Stevo is hurt beyond measures when he discovers that his best friend Bob is dead. After attending Bob's funeral, Stevo has come to terms that he can no longer live the lifestyle of a punk. He decides to accept the once Harvard University offer. He also has come to terms that Brandy is just the type of grounded woman that he needs in his life, and after graduating from college he plans on marrying her. He realizes that his youthful life as a punk would probably not recognize his future self.
