Romulus is a Yugoslavian man who struggles to raise his young son alone in Victoria, Australia.

After the family moves from Europe, his wife's depression takes over and she leaves her husband and son alone to fend for themselves.

Raimond comes of age in Victoria where he lives with his dad while his mother Christina, estranged from Romulus, is in Melbourne.

Romulus is near despair when Christina takes up with his best friend’s brother, who suggests he send for a new wife from back home.

For Rai going through puberty, poverty and confused about the mysterious ways of adults make him long for a stable home.
