WHOLETRAIN tells the story of four young graffiti artists, fighting for fame and respect at any price. They are always looking for the next big thing and defending their status. When another crew injures their honor it leads to a heated creative conflict. The KSB-crew sets off to spray an entire commuter train, a “Wholetrain”, unleashing a chain of events that will change their lives forever.
