Ian is a young man from Australia who has never had an easy life; his mother is an alcoholic who can’t stand the sight of him and his father doesn’t give him the time of day. The only person to care about him is his older sister Kylie, but the pair has been separated with only the promise that when Ian fulfils his goal, they will be reunited. One day he meets a writer named Jim who takes an interest in Ian’s troubled life and decides to write a novel about him. With a life that’s far from simple, will his story have a happy ending?
