'Greta, Victoria, 1911.

A thunder-storm forces journalist Brian Cookson to seek shelter at a roadside cottage; he is taken in by three little girls and the old woman they call Gran. Cookson starts to explain that he has to write a story about Dan Kelly and Steve Hart of the Kelly Gang being alive and well in South Africa. The old woman spins round and glares.

' "Lies, lies, lies!"

'Cookson is dumbfounded.

"But how can you know?"

"I am his mother."

'Will she ever trust a newspaper man with the truth about living like a Kelly?' (Publication summary)
