Billy is 10 years old. He is lying on the slab in a city morgue. He has just been killed. Earlier, he was sexually abused by his brother, Tom, in a garden shed. Then Tom bundled Billy into his car and pushed him out onto the road as he drove towards the mountains. We hear Billy's story within the time space of his landing and dying on the bitumen. His disbelief at his own death and his awareness of the diminishing living space he holds form the drama of this short monologue.
