Tony Hobbs, sixteen and fatherless, shoulders enormous responsibility for his baby brother Charlie while his mother, Paula works night shifts at a telemarketing call centre. Tony is given the chance of a lifetime when he is invited to try out for a state school boys’ rugby team: a potential springboard for a lucrative career and a better life for his family. His mother suffers from Multiple Sclerosis along with deep-seated grief after the loss of her husband. Lurking at the edge of this outer Melbourne suburban family is Scarf, Tony's recently discovered half-brother. Scarf empathises with Tony's dilemma and lures him into committing a crime to get the money Tony needs to pursue his dream. Their decision could have tragic consequences for both Scarf and Tony.
