The film follows artists the week before their mural is set to be painted, taking a deeper look into their lives, what has inspired their passion for this work, and what obstacles they currently face in their pursuit of art activism. This comes after a resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 following the continued killing of unarmed Black people at the hands of police. Protests erupted across the nation calling for systemic and institutional change. These calls were echoed in Kansas City where, in response, the City Council passed a proclamation to create murals featuring the words “Black Lives Matter.”
