Three young men endure an impoverished existence in Sydney, Australia. The Vietnamese Van (Joe Le) is a homeless thief desperate to survive. When he encounters a free-spirited young woman (Daniela Italiano), his life changes. Des (Rodney Anderson) is homeless as well but faces different issues: a pregnant girlfriend and trouble with a neighborhood gangster. Then there's Tommy (Jason McGoldrick), a junkie trying to kick his heroin habit after his girlfriend tragically overdoses.
