In the not-so-distant future, Australia is blowing away... Sand dunes are gradually swallowing the countryside, there's no rain, and water supplies are dwindling. When one of the last country towns is evacuated, a farmer and his wife are unwittingly left behind.
The dust creeps into their lungs; the dunes swallow their only child. It's time to give up and head for the coast, but the sand frustrates their every effort to leave. A thought-provoking blend of realistic and surreal drama.
Winner of Best Unpublished Work at 1989 Tamworth Drama Festival.
