As young Petros maneuvers the hallways of the Hellenic American School for the Arts, it’s the ice cream man, who stops by at recess, from whom he learns the most. Just one year shy of making it into high school, Petros challenges the strict rules of his school while also trying to follow the strict rules of his traditional Greek home in a tough neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens.
When he finally gets the chance to go to the specialized high school his brother now attends, his hopes and efforts are challenged by all the authority figures around him, except for his newfound friend, Mulvaney.
