       It is  an historical drama played out over millennia with multi-layered themes of love, intrigue, myth, science and true historical detail. Set in the Basque areas of Spain and France over two decades of civil war, nazi occupation, liberation and political division, powerful characters play out an ancient cycle of murder and revenge resurfacing to haunt a young woman and her daughter seeking to escape war and violence; but there is no escaping the past.

She soon breaks away and establishes a career for herself as an academic just as the politically tumultuous years of the late sixties rock the old institutions of an Australia, still attached to its colonial heritage but engaged in a violent, hopeless and controversial  war with it's American allies in Vietnam.
