ONE WORD REVOLUTION takes place in a dystopian internment camp that holds immigrants suspected of, and often falsely accused of, terrorism. The prisoners are forced into daily slave labor and publicly beaten for the any wrongdoing. Evelyn has never known life outside the walls as she came to the camp as an infant. Inspired by the support of a political rebel named Moyra, Evelyn sends a note over the wall one night that simply says 'hello'. Her note is found by a young soldier named Riley. Together, they begin a revolt to end the camp once and for all.
