Billy O'Shannessy, once a prominent barrister is now a homeless alcoholic. Above his park bench rests a bronze statue of Matthew Flinders' cat. Ryan is a 10 year old street kid heading for all the usual trouble. The two meet and form an unlikely friendship. With a little imagination and history, the two begin their rehabilitation.
