The Prodigal is a modern interpretation of the parable of the Lost Son. Set in outback New South Wales and Kings Cross, Sydney, the story centres on Jake Hill, a young farmer with dreams of experiencing the glitz and glamour of city life. Selling up his portion of his inheritance, he heads to Sydney for the start of a new life, only to discover that along with the excitement, life in the city is full of pitfalls. With one mistake after another, Jake finds his life rapidly spiraling out of control. Penniless and destitute, Jake experiences life as one of Sydney’s homeless, until one chance encounter offers him hope.
