Bob Taylor traces his life from his earliest memory at the St, Teresa's home in England and his consequent trip to Bindoon Boys Town in W.A. He describes his time at Bindoon; the religious brothers who ran the institution; religion; abuse; the conditions, routines and treatment at Bindoon; the building works, making bricks, plastering and scaffolding; friends; his life after leaving Bindoon at the age of 16 and the dificulties encountered with social skills and in other areas. Bob sings and recites verses about various institutions.
