Lockie is a bit of a misfit. Orphaned, he is placed in foster home after foster home, but somehow he never settles in. ‘Troublemaker’ is the general verdict. He runs away and meets up with some colourful characters – Dadge and his strange friends Pasha and Mammy Tallon. For the first time Lockie doesn’t feel like an outsider. But others are out to wreck his happiness.
