St. Elmo’s Fire is about seven friends: Alec, Billy, Jules, Kevin, Kirby, Leslie and Wendy who have just finished their studies at college. They are trying to navigate their life and friendships through the struggles of adulthood. 

Alec who aspires for a seat in Congress changes his political party from Democrat to Republican thus causing a fight with Leslie his girlfriend over her desire to know herself first before settling down in marriage. She is an architect. As a waiter and aspiring lawyer Kirby tries to have a romance with Dale Biberman, who is slightly older than him.

Writer Kevin who is friends with all these people doesn’t believe in love as it exists. Now married with a child, Billy has pushed aside adult responsibilities. Wendy comes from wealth but works for low wages at social services and has been secretly pining for Billy since childhood, and Jules (played by Demi Moore) squanders away all her money while worrying everyone else around her. The film takes viewers through a journey of friendship among these eccentric and colorful characters who do not seem to be like birds of a feather.

Starring Emilio Estevez, Andrew McCarthy, Rob Lowe, Ally Sheedy, Demi Moore and Judd Nelson are among those who featured in this film also known as St Elmo’s Fire. In 1985, David Blum in an article published in New York Magazine called them Brat Pack of Hollywood which was intended to be a wordplay on Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack.

Moore recently confessed to Entertainment Weekly, "None of us really liked the idea of being called 'brats,' or that we weren't professionals or didn't take our work seriously. It was such an interesting, curious thing. We all had different experiences. [The Brat Pack] was very impactful for Andrew, and shifted the direction of his career." They all got together recently in New York City for the Tribeca Film Festival to support McCarthy during the premiere of his documentary BRATS.
