Sparring With Shadows
David Martinesi is a first-generation Italian Australian growing up in an inner-city suburb. He is fighting the shadows cast by his Italian upbringing, and this summer he is quietly waiting for change. He is befriended by confident, street-wise Nathan and finally his wishes seem to be coming true, but not all change is good, and tragedy arrives on his doorstep too.
