Sam and Lexi have been friends since Year 12 and are now in their first year at university. Lexi has asked Sam to help her get elected to the university students' union. But Sam has something troubling him...something about the way the world is using words like 'terrorist' and 'war' and 'boat people'. Lexi hasn't got time to worry about those sort of issues, she's too busy trying to win the approval of her new university friends. She doesn't realise it, but her friendship with Sam is in serious trouble.
