Brief Movie Description:

Malcolm (Ty Hickson) and Sofia (Tashiana Washington), two determined teens from the Bronx, are the ultimate graffiti-writers. When a rival gang covers over their latest masterpiece, they hatch ambitious plans to be the first ever to tag the Big Apple sign at the Mets' Shea Stadium that rises up whenever a homerun is hit, but they need to raise $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme. Over the course of two whirlwind, sun-soaked summer days, Malcolm and Sofia travel on an epic urban adventure involving black market spray cans, illicit bodegas, stolen sneakers, a high stakes heist, and a beautiful, stoned girl (Zoë Lescaze) whose necklace is literally their key to becoming the biggest writers in the City. Written and directed by Adam Leon, whose debut feature "hits a humanistic sweet spot, turning its two trash-talking Picassos into underdog heroes" (David Fear, Time Out New York). Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival.
