'With scapel-sharp precision, leading Australian writer Louis Nowra turns his attention to the intimate, odd and moving relationship between mother and teenage son. Assuming new identities, they hit the road and head for the tropics of Queensland. Bound for adventure and abandoning the past, they share a road trip which brings them much closer together, but also drives them apart.'
