 Synopsis  Information
Raised by octogenarian grandparents after his narcissistic mother left to join a retreat centre, Will Clark is an uncomfortable mix of teenage shyness and adult candour. Fiercely loyal to his mother, he resents his father, whom he blames for her leaving. Convinced his Year Twelve classmates think he's a loser, he retreats into the imaginary world of fantasy novels every chance he gets, entertaining himself between times with fantasy takes on the real life around him, with himself cast as the hero Superclerk. But, try as he might, Will can't keep reality at bay. As his first full-contact taekwondo fight looms ever closer, Woody the bull-necked prop starts bullying him, and his grandfather is taken to hospital with suspected cancer. Ages 10+.
