Written in Australian poetic vernacular,
Boy out of the Country
tells a story of land, family and belonging. A family property, worthless for generations, is suddenly zoned as part of a regional housing estate to accommodate an ever increasing urban sprawl. At this moment of shifting economies and loyalties, Hunter returns from a seven year absence. Finding his boyhood house boarded up and his mother in a retirement home, Hunter goes in search of answers. And he starts with his brother Gordon.
