Storyline

You were a convict brought to Australia for the crime of stealing bread and butter from a shop back home in London. You were hungry at the time, unable to find work, and alone. Your only family, your mother, died two years before. You were in prison for 3 years, but today is your first day as a free man.  

What can you do? You feel lost and have no idea how to start a new life so far from home. You decide to visit Sydney as a free man for the first time. Maybe here you’ll find some hope.
