Summary

Forbidden inter-racial love, injustice and the edges of insanity mark one of the great, untold stories of Australian history. Henry Grimshaw falls into his father's footsteps on a passionate crusade to save the Aboriginal people of North Queensland. The 1890s in Australia is a time of harsh racism. Grimshaw is joined by his family to run a mission on constant political power struggle of his church. Incurring the wrath of his mother Grace and against all cultural conventions, his sister Ellen falls in love with a Kalangari man. This is a story about power, love, joy, injustice and the edges of insanity that mark one of the great, untold stories of Australian history.
