Polkadots follows 8-year-old Lily, who just moved to the “Squares Only” town of Rockaway. As the first Polkadot in an all-Square school, Lily faces an almost impossible task of gaining acceptance from her peers. From daily bullying to segregated drinking fountains, Lily’s quest seems hopeless until she meets Sky, a shy Square boy whose curiosity for her unique Polkadot skin blooms into an unexpected pal-ship.

Inspired by the events of the Little Rock Nine, Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
