Synopsis

The liberated 60s have not reached the shores of New Zealand when Claire, a single pregnant girl is sent up-country to have her child.

The Sloane family are strangers who offer to board her through this time. But are they?

Claire is thrust into the unknown when Alan and Hazel Sloane are involved in a truck accident on the farm. Initial fears at being alone reach a climax when an elderly man arrives to look after the animals.

He is Bob Hodge, Hazel's father. Claire and Bob gradually an affinity develops between the pair.

A thread of facts begins to unwind about herself and the family she is living with. Tragedies of the past surface and actions of the present complicate issues.The local schoolteacher enters Claire's life with consequences that could be tragic while two local women show their true colours.

In this conservative rural area, the tranquillity of the surface hides a darker background that goes back a generation to before Claire was born.

And she is directly involved.
