For Stevo, living in Reagan-era Salt Lake City, rebellion is an imperative. A recent grad, his world centers on anarchy, refusing the system, and the music of The Ramones, Dead Kennedys and The Specials. His ex-hippie father sees this lifestyle as an important rite of passage, yet urges Stevo to attend Harvard Law School, as he did. Not to sell out to the system, but to buy in. For Stevo, underneath the mohawk, earrings and leather, the idea, painfully, has some merit. The question becomes, how do you stay hard-core and still hope for a life beyond?
