Synopsis

Tough kids from tough backgrounds living dangerous lives – these are the young people of Oasis, a grimy brick youth refuge in inner-city Sydney. No story is too horrific, no circumstance too dire, no kid too damaged for its tireless director, Captain Paul Moulds. Father figure, counsellor, saviour, and an orphan himself, Paul is nothing short of a legend amongst those who stumble in at breaking point, with nowhere left to go. Only Paul is there through all the chaos from the birth of new babies to the funerals of those who self-destruct prematurely. This raw observational documentary filmed over two and a half years, charts the fraught lives of Paul’s extended family and captures his daily battle to save these lost children of the so-called ‘Lucky Country.’
