A documentary about homeless youths, some as young as 10, surviving by any means on the streets of Melbourne. Various young people are interviewed about their situation and their search for jobs and accommodation. Highlights the frustrations they face and the resultant temptation to fall into crime and prostitution in order to survive. Police and social workers who deal with these young people from day to day comment on the situation and how they attempt to alleviate the despair of those they encounter.
