Monday is nine years old and her imagination is captive to the disease she suffers from and the Moon Rock, into which she pours her hopes for healing. By a twist of fate, she becomes involved in a police chase involving Tyler, a street kid with a huge heart. Tyler uses Monday to evade the police, but despite the circumstances they soon strike up a foolproof complicity. They decide to run away and embark on a road trip to the Northern Territory to find the Moon Rock. It all culminates in a gripping finale set in the heart of Australia, and a poignant end to an emotional journey and an encounter not without consequences
