Fifteen-year-old Victoria Markham enjoys three things: English class, her goth look and spray-painting. It isn't long before she's caught red-handed and forced into community service with a bunch of other vandals: there's Rachael, the princess; Russell and Peter, a pair of punks; and Zach, the rich jock who Vic is crushing on. The motley crew has to produce a mural for Halifax. On top of all that, Vic's mother's boyfriend, the only father figure Vic has ever known and the one who taught her to paint, has left them both. Vic is convinced her mother doesn't care enough to find out what's really behind the getup.
