The story of six Melbourne teenagers, as told by all of them.


One of us is in the dark.

One of us is a bully.

One of us wants to be understood.

One of us loves a girl who loves another.

One of us remembers the past as if it just happened.

One of us believes they’ve drawn the future.

But we’re all on the same map, looking for the same thing.

Year Ten begins with a jolt for best friends and neighbours Wren and Milo. Along with Hari, Juliet, Ben and Adie, they tell a story of friendship, family, wild crushes, bitter feuds, and the power of a portrait.

As their lives interwine, images could bring them together, and tear them apart.
