Musician, storyteller and craftsman, Ronnie Summers recalls the freedom of growing up on Cape Barren Island and how the island's music shaped his life. He draws on a childhood working the muttonbird islands, a 'kangaroo court' prison term as a bewildered teenager, and then turning to alcohol after the death of his baby son.
