Angel's dad is a Muslim from Iraq; his mum is a second-generation Australian of Italian heritage. His friends Ryder, Lola and Honey are all Anglo-Aussies. Despite a world of terrorist attacks, racial tension, wars and mounting local aggression, Angel finds himself falling in love with Honey.

But when Ryder's older brother Jax is released from prison, Angel is forced to choose between two loyalties. Is he an 'Aussie' or a 'Muzzo'. Faced with betrayal, he must decide between his family and the world he thought he belonged to. In this new multicultural world, which is thicker, blood or water?
