Pirra, the spirit of an abandoned derelict building on the outskirts of Geelong, is invaded one night by five teenagers looking for an alternative home. They make the building their space, until the night when the spirit world and the 'real' world collide. Pirra reveals to each of the five their hidden fears, and they in turn help her to resurrect her foundations.
Written in collaboration with a group of young people in Geelong.
'Pirra faces the same challenges that Australia is facing as a nation. She cannot reject her past but neither can she wallow in its misery. She must find a way to acknowledge her ancestry, and to recognise her own potential to become something.'
