Simone Harlowe is young and clever, an Aboriginal lawyer straddling two lives and two cultures while studying at Harvard. Her family lfe back in Sydney is defined by the complex relationship she has with her father Tony, a prominent Aboriginal rights activist.

Can Simone accept her father for the man he is and forgive him for the man he's not?
