A darkly humorous coming-of-age tale with raw emotions dripping from the page.

Johnny and Martin are alcoholics living under a bridge in their home town. Their stories, and how they both ended up homeless, are intimately linked from the two years they spent together in a religious order's boarding school.

Johnny tells the story of their initially innocent days in the school: their loneliness; their interactions with the other students and the canings they got from priests. He also describes their methods of dealing with the Mr Bawmans the monks that prey on the naive young students for their own sexual gratification.

However, the boys lives become more complicated once they meet two sisters working in the school kitchens. According to the societal rules of the students, liaisons with girls working in the school are not acceptable.

When Martin impregnates his girlfriend, Billy - the school bully - in an episode with echoes of Lord of the Flies, holds a show trial to make an example of him to the rest of the students.
