While being assessed by the military as an outpatient Gerard reunites with his older, homeless brother Danny, whos wounded in his own way.

"Skip Millers Hit Songs" -- Skip Miller has spent years photographing the war zones of Africa.

Balancing his suburban life in Adelaide and the reality of his experiences in Africa leaves him dislocated as he finds it difficult to fit in.

This dislocation is mirrored in the experiences of African refugees now living in Adelaide.
