A dramatised re-enactment of cultural conflict and the parent, student, teacher triangle. Steve is a seventeen year old, born in Macedonia and living in Australia, who is not doing well at school. He is caught in between a father, who has high hopes for him, and a burnt out teacher, and in the end it is Steve who suffers most.
