    Simone Harlowe is young and clever, an Aboriginial lawyer straddling two lives and two cultures while studying at Harvard.

    Her family life back in Sydney is defined by her complex relationship with her father, Tony, a prominent Aboriginal rights activist. As Simone juggles the challenges of a modern woman’s life – career, family, friends and relationships – her father is confronting his own uncomfortable truths, as his secret double-life implodes.

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