Diss tells the story of a newcomer family as they navigate through their new lives in a big Canadian city. Overwhelmed by the desire to fit in, the son soon becomes entangled in the world of immigrant youth gangs and gun violence. 
Infused with hip-hop elements, this Forum Theatre piece is sure to inspire audience to speak up and stand up for those in their communities.
