After stumbling into the bad part of town, Chris is taunted and punched in the stomach by a gang of young toughs. He vows to rehabilitate them with his own special blend of disturbing role-playing sessions and a trip to the local supermarket. The gag's reaction to this 'therapy' is to tie up and rob Chris' parent. To get back their belongs, Chris submits to a grueling gang initiation that includes jumping off a 30-story building, setting himself on fire, and bobbing for apples in a pot of boiling toxic waste.

After Chris is run over by the same car twice within five minutes, he realizes its driver, Tricia, is the girl of his dreams. At this point he does what any love struck person would do - he relentlessly stalks Tricia day and night, gluing his had to her shoe, showing up inside her over, and generally making her live a living hell. At the same time, Chris finds himself being stalked by another girl, Evelyn, who, unfortunately, stabs Christ to death just as Tricia is starting to kind of like him.
