When Julia's attempt to cover up a slur about her best friend painted on the gymnasium walls at her deaf school results in her being expelled after the same friend rats her out, she finds herself feeling like an outcast in the mainstream school in her suburb. As she tries to ease her angst by painting graffiti around her town, she finds herself in a turf war with another artist. Expressing herself through her art might land her in even hotter water if she's not careful, but her graffiti is the only part of her identity that makes sense to her now that she's the only deaf kid in her class so it's a risk she's willing to take.
