"Home owner" and survivor Ringo is a former child soldier, a character who has "lived many lives". Displaced from his African homeland and instilled in his new one, a temporary shelter in downtown Footscray, he is a refugee from horrors he has been forced to perpetrate.

"One morning I woke up and everything I knew was gone. One morning I woke up and I didn’t have a name."

"Through rhythm and repetition, Keene’s script constructs what appears at times to be clowning, but is in fact a mirage above an emotional wasteland – a dissociative fugue, hovering over the kind of grief that can suck the air out of a room." - Cameron Woodhead, The Age
