    Brief synopsis

    In 2007, Craig and Shane fell victim to a brutal hate crime off Sydney’s Oxford Street. The image of Craig’s shattered face electrified Sydney’s queer community, reinforcing for many that years of struggle for safety and acceptance were not over. The hard 18 months after their bashing - the endless surgeries, and the recovery from physical and psychological damage - is interwoven with discussions on homophobic violence from Sydney’s queer community, police officers, and politicians.
