About this event

Escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of the pharaoh Ramses II. On his way to Egypt, via Woolworths, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie -- a lost six-year-old. Together they embark on a journey that will change both their lives forever.
