Matthew's dream was not uncommon. The plan was to get out of Sydney and settle down in the small country town of Temora NSW. His dream was to eventually buy a little farm, start his career as a high school teacher in a small town, and have a family. A simple plan you would think. Matthew lasted in Temora for just 6 months. Patricia's memoir reveals the untold stories from Temora. Using a collection of family and friends' recollections, as well as witness statements and official reports, we learn the power of four young girls and a closed minded community, a common attitude of guilty until proven innocent, the blinded eyes of those who are supposed to help and how a young man's life can be ruined in a split second.
