Four boys survive on night streets of St Kilda’s red-light district in the 1980’s, when the sexual exploitation of street kids was at epic proportions.  

Turning tricks for a feed and drugs, their trust in the world has long since been obliterated. Their only place of safety and dignity is in their loyalty to each other and the power of their bond. The fragile balance is broken when an act of betrayal pushes them to perform an unspeakable act. 

The characters are fictional, but the story is based on true events.
