Meet the Seagull, a 10 year old working-class Italian boy who moves from semi-rural Bankstown to the city suburb of Waterloo in 1961.

It is difficult to make good friends and the Seagull soon realises his only chance of combating the threat of isolation is to try to fit in with the inner city gangs called Sharpies. Their world both captivates and frightens him, but if he is to survive he must learn how to tread a careful path through the maze of rules and codes the Sharpies follow.

He must also learn how to deny his ethnic identity to become one of the boys. Explore this fascinating world where the musical tastes, fashion, sexuality and morality of the Sharpies clash with the dominant ideas of what it is to be a man in the 1960s.
