'When Amadeo first arrives in Australia with his sister and parents, he's greeted by the promise of 'a better life'. A change. A chance. But Amadeo must adapt quickly to these changes: new place, new people, new school, new freedoms ... all so different from what he's used to. The challenge gets harder when his parents return to the Philippines and he has to make do with the distance, both physical and cultural, that now defines his life. You only really realise what something means to you when it's taken away. Finding something to hold on to becomes all that's left.'
