This is the story of a six year old waif and his once courageous, but now drunken father. Sid McCall is down on his luck. His greatest mate is his son, Crispy, and together they share all the joys and disappointments that street life in the slums of Melbourne can bring. Although only young, Crispy mixes easily with the street people, who share a common fellowship that always unites them during times of trouble. Drawn into the world of Sid and Crispy are social worker, Jill Harkness and Major Briggs of the Salvation Army. Both are concerned about the boys future and are committed to a custody battle with Sid, in the belief that separation will be best for the boy.
