It’s 1999 and the Y2K bug may end it all, but Frankie’s about to finish year 12 and adulthood is so close she can almost taste it. She’s in with the popular girls, gets good marks at school, and attends one of the best schools in Melbourne. Life is just about perfect. But then a friend from her past appears, and her life crashes. She has smothered her memories of 1989, and refused to admit to the crime she committed when she was so young. As she acknowledges it, she is struck by the realisation that deep down, she may still have those violent tendencies. Perhaps she will always be making amends for that moment.

EXTRACT: The teachers chucked me in with the year sixes, hoping I'd get intimidated and quiet and shit. I just sit and scribble on paper all day. Six hours a day, five days a week, I'm just scribbling. Not doing pictures, fuck writing words or whatever, I'm just filling paper with grey lead. The postman liked to wipe our mail with dog shit and try to run me over with his bike. Dad gets home and kicks me in the back if I'm watching TV.
