When the Victorian Government locks down his public-housing building, a teenager responsible for his mother’s welfare is pushed to the brink.

Bursting with incendiary rage, this tense drama – shot with an almost harsh, vérité-style realism – presents an insider’s view on a distressing, still-unresolved chapter of recent Melbourne history.
