The story is centered around two young people, Sara (Megan Edwards) and Virgil (Virgil Mignanelli), who meet each other while getting tattoos at a local tattoo parlor. From the beginning of the film, the audience is introduced to the characters' backgrounds: Sara and Virgil both come from different worlds with different experiences.

Sara, who initially gets her tattoo to erase her past, begins to embrace her tattoos as a part of her identity. Virgil, on the other hand, sees tattoos as a way to express his art and emotions.

The movie also touches on the importance of communication in relationships. Sara and Virgil's relationship is not perfect, and they face their fair share of challenges. However, the film shows us how they both work together to overcome their issues and communicate properly in order to strengthen their relationship.
