Description The story of Ringo, an ex-child soldier. Displaced from his homeland, he lives rough in a box in a park next to Footscray Railway Station. He draws us into his story - one that moves across continents from Africa to Australia - in the hope that somehow a retelling will provide him the anchor to his life which he currently lacks.
