'Paul Jackson runs away from home. He's in the top form of the primary school in a Sydney suburb, and he's doing okay in class. But he's a new boy and he's an Aborigine [sic], and some of the toughies at school think those are good enough reasons to pick a fight with him. The headmaster is prejudiced against him and doesn't take his part, and Paul thinks this is a good reason to run away. His white mate, Brett Towers, goes with him. Where do they run? To a deserted terrace house inhabited by an old drunken "derro". Soon all three are top mates. But mateship has its ups and down, as the two boys soon find out.'
