When forced to deal with someone from a different background than you, do you accept them, or immediately shun them away? James is a young, single dad working at a factory with his friend, in order to support his mother and child. When Cole, the Jermain factory owner's son, shows up for his first day of work early in the summer, James is told to "make friends." Though reluctant at first, the two bond over a shared love of art, specifically graffiti. As the summer comes to a close, tension between the three has become unbearable, so Jermain takes things into his own hands.
