Wildlight, written by David Metzenthen - one Australia’s leading writers for young people - is the story of a young man, Dirk, who was found as a child in the wild forest. He was subsequently raised in squalor in a sparse shed by a cruel and emotionally abusive family.
Determined to change the abhorrent and most unlucky life thrust upon him, Dirk flees the town and embarks on a cross-country quest, seeking to purge himself from his past in order to find redemption and begin life anew.
Narrated with suspenseful and somber tones by Australian Michael Veitch.
