In this neurodivergent love story, Naomi, a dance prodigy with an affinity for blue, feels in colors and refuses to wear a clown nose. Cole, a percussion virtuoso, can recite a complete history of the xylophone but won’t meet your eyes. Measured against scales of social competence, they'll push the boundaries of compliance to find connection in an isolating world and shatter the complacency of the disembodied voices running the show.
