Runaway: A Young Man’s Search for Himself
Abandoned as a tiny baby, Robbie, a young teenager is desperately seeking his birth parents. He is extremely naïve, lacks self esteem and social skills, and is
down-trodden by his peers.
Robbie is emotionally shattered, realising his dream of being a real family will never be, given the truth of his parent’s situation. In his quest, he learns new skills, and experiences country life.
He meets Jake while working on a sheep station in NSW and the two become best mates. As cocky nineteen-year-olds, the larrikins find themselves in
all sorts of situations as they discover B&S Balls, bush races, girls and grog!
Robbie takes up bull-riding on the rodeo circuit and it is here he meets Magdeline Thornton. A dangerous liaison: her father, a very powerful man, has
no time for rough-riders.
Robbie’s life is changed in a way he could never, ever have imagined.
