Australia Day. Three young people are on the run. April Tucker, a 13-year-old indigenous girl. Sami Ghaznavi, a 17-year-old Iranian boy and Sū Mai, a 19-year-old Chinese woman. Each is scared. Subtle connections will draw these three braids progressively tighter until they reach their climaxes on that hot, contentious, enigmatic day on the calendar… Australia Day. Every one of our characters will have to make a sacrifice and pay a heavy price. Bad mistakes are made…yet people will step up. They will make change happen. And we learn that we do have power to decide our tribe, our place, the colour of our future… Hope prevails.
