Set in Sydney, 1999, after an unlikely encounter at a train station, a young terminally ill girl befriends a fugitive teenage boy and they travel to visit a moon rock that the girl believes will heal her
MONDAY, a nine-year-old girl home-schooled by her father BOB (Aaron Jeffery) in Sydney. Due to her terminal illness, Monday’s only contact with the outside world is her weekly visit to the hospital. Monday’s imagination is captured by the Moon Rock (Uluru) which she believes will heal her and desires to travel to the middle of Australia to find it. By a twist of fate. She becomes caught up in a police chase involving TYLER (George Pullar), a street kid with a massive heart. Tyler uses Monday to evade the police, but despite the circumstances, they soon form a friendship.
They decide to go on the run, road tripping to the Northern Territory to find the Moon Rock. Along the way, they meet a cast of outback characters, some helpful and some not-so. Meanwhile, Bob is desperately trying to track his daughter down before DETECTIVE LIONELL ( David Field) and the police – who are out for blood. It all culminates in a gripping finale set in the heart of Australia, and a heart-warming end to a touching journey of friendship.
