Western Victoria, 1878. William Dutton staggers around in his old whaler’s hut, dead drunk, in a world of his own. Each night he is visited by his long dead Aboriginal wife, Renanghi, and together they rake over their tumultuous years at Portland Bay. He cannot tell if she is a ghost or a figment of his imagination, and in his dilapidated condition, he no longer cares. But tonight is different. He senses the end is nigh, and before he dies, he must speak the truth about the night they last saw each other - the night the Convincing Ground got its name. Convincing Ground is a gothic love story about Australia’s early sealers and whalers and their often fraught relationships with Aboriginal women.
