A musical about freedom of speech. Using street art as a focal point, the film examines the various ways people struggle to express themselves in situations where free speech is curtailed or suppressed. It also explores how certain kinds of expression can be repressive to individuals. Musical numbers convey these topics and the arguments that ensue are debated in a courtroom sequence. Graffiti, public murals, commercial billboards and hallway posters form the visual backdrop that exemplify these issues.
