Description - The Kid by Michael Gow
In blazing heat, a stolen Mini hurtles towards Sydney. Inside, three unstable teenagers from the country - Snake, Aspro and Dean - plan a future that will begin when they collect Aspro's accident compo from the Department. Joined by Donald, an opera fanatic desperate for a change of scene, they travel to the city to take up residence in `the largest block of flats in the Southern Hemisphere'. As bush fires rage on the edge of the city, they meet Desiree, a young girl from downstairs with apocalyptic predictions. Sparks fly. Tensions escalate. Twilight approaches...
