Ophelia hardly speaks to anyone, until one day a visiting author comes to give a talk in the school library. By day she goes to school and works at the dollar store before returning home to her mother. At night she creates graffiti around town. One night she finds an abandoned building that she decides to use as her workshop. When she finds that a classmate named Ulysses is also using the space, the two form an uneasy truce. As time passes, Ophelia and Ulysses forge a friendship, but their cocooned existence cannot last forever.
