" the poor can't have enough and the richest can't have it all. " Dan Howell and his family are poor - they struggle to make ends meet. Dan has one passion in life - art. Unable to find a canvas, Dan makes the alleys at night his canvas - turning the walls into paintings. Phil Lester - the richest and loneliest kid around - finds the paintings, and soon finds himself drawn to the beautiful graffiti, which is only ever blue.
