Lost and dissatisfied in his own life, an architect (Colin Friels) tries to live vicariously through others, including a gay hustler, a junkie, and and old poet of the streets. Peppered with powerful, ambiguous and visceral moments, Tom White is a rarity in Australian filmmaking: it's a sensory journey on the darker edges of modern urban existence in which the journey IS the story.
