    In 1954, in a construction camp for a hydroelectric dam in the remote Tasmanian highlands, Bojan Buloh had brought his family to start a new life away from Slovenia, the privations of war, and refugee settlements.

Thirty-five years later, Sonja returns to Tasmania and a father haunted by memories of the European war and other, more recent horrors.
