Raggleton. 1950s. For young Jimmy Sullivan, idyllic days at the beach, fishing off the wharf and pictures once a week are a distraction from convent school and a growing disharmony in his parents' marriage. Struggling to reconcile the Almighty's love with the dispondence of his home-life, he rebels against his friends, teachers and finally his Creator, vowing no longer to be His "God Boy". However when the matrimonial feud takes a murderous turn, Jimmy is confronted with a test of faith that will forever change his life.
