AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Three crazy women and one angry young man get lost and found in the desert of the Northern Territory. This is a brutal but beautiful, haunting but hilarious road-trpi into the Never-Never. Ruby goes on the run from Darwin and is hitch-hiking to freedom. Trish's husband has mysteriously disappeared from their roadside store in the Daintree, so Trish takes off in the ute. Jonah has been dumped in the desert by his alcoholic mother and her lunatic boyfriend. Patricia is an aging ex-hooker, heading North on the night bus from Brisbane to Three Ways.' http://www.jute.com.au (Sighted 13/08/04)
