An embattled Australian teenager attempts to navigate through an existence as part of an explosive crime-fueled family.

When his mother succumbs to her own demons and dies of a heroin overdose, however, Joshua moves in with estranged grandmother and crime family matriarch Janine "Smurf" Cody, thrust into an unforgiving way of life where he must navigate through his extended family's shady dealings whilst cooperating with a detective determined to assist him in his situation.
