After his mother tragically dies, Chris' father falls apart and Chris turns to running drugs for pot dealer Hayden to make the rent payments. When he meets Audrey, Hayden's girlfriend who has been away at art school, he instantly falls for her.
Hayden expands his business into the cocaine trade, but he can't put his past addiction behind him and most of it goes up his own nose. One night he ODs and ends up unconscious in the hospital. Audrey and Chris spend that same night together.
With Hayden in the hospital, Chris's cousin and best friend Brian begins supplying his customers. When Hayden recovers and learns what Brian is doing, he demands a meeting. The meeting quickly turns into a fight and when Brian goes for his gun, Hayden grabs it and beats him over the head with it until he's unconscious. He then leaves Brian there, bleeding in the cold. Brian does not survive the night.
When Chris learns Hayden killed Brian, he knows he has to take revenge for his cousin's death and protect Audrey from a dangerous man. He goes to the New Year's Eve party where Hayden is dealing and looks for him. Audrey comes to the party as well, hoping to stop Chris. When she bursts into the room where a rival dealer is teaching Hayden a lesson, Hayden reaches for his gun and fires.
Chris hears the shots and runs to the room. Seeing only a bloody and frantic Hayden shaking Audrey, he raises his gun and does what he came to do.

High School Record follows four awkward 17-year-olds as they struggle through their senior year. Like most high school students, they ride a continual wave of embarrassment: crappy after-school jobs, attempted sex in the science room, tinfoil shorts, guitar-strumming hippie teachers and brushes with the law. The only difference is that their moments of humiliation are all caught on tape - our gang of four are the subjects of a documentary shot by fellow classmates. A journey into narrative anarchy, High School Record is an engaging film partially improvised by its young cast. Written by Ben Wolfinsohn and based on his own high school experiences, HIGH SCHOOL RECORD is a painfully funny exploration of the teenage mind. High School Record is a follow up to Wolfinsohn's critically acclaimed music documentary Friends Forever.

Fishbone lives up to their legend as "THE" group to bridge the gap between the funk of George Clinton and the blare of Rush; a hybrid fusion where Led Zeppelin and Sly Stone dance to a frenetic ska beat that fuel's the alternative thrust of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane's Addiction and the cast of Lollapalooza. From their childhood together in the hardcore South Central Los Angeles wasteland to years of forced school-bused integration, Fishbone's influences were kaleidoscopic and never-ending. The band was formed in 1979 in the ghettos of South Central Los Angeles. The group came from the same Los Angeles scene that spawned the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane's Addiction. Fishbone first gained attention with their unique live concerts, earning a reputation as one of the most original bands in the alternative genre. Their unique stew of different styles, mixed with hectic energy and pounding rhythms, were a huge influence on the funk/rock/metal/rap genre that would become popular in the 1990s. Live audiences around the world have been surrendering to the band's stage flash and magical rhythms with uninterrupted regularity. Such passionate devotion is not lost on Fishbone, who refer to their friends on the road as "The Familyhood."
