The polar opposite reject, Nadia, Jason’s sister, is jealous and bitter toward Ivy, the class beauty queen with a reputation for many lovers. As the group rehearses a school production of Romeo and Juliet, tensions rise and they struggle to come to terms with who they are and who the world thinks they should be. They seek answers and grapple with responses from their church, their friends, and ultimately, from within themselves. bare’s rich, vibrant, sung-through pop score draw on many styles of contemporary music, with deeply resonating lyrics and powerful rock melodies.
