Ulysses is an Aboriginal man torn between his love for Violet and his desire to fight for what he sees as the greater good. Ed and Molly might be his parents - and Violet might be his sister. Through the confusion, Ulysses struggles to come to terms with himself, his culture and the forces that affect his daily life. A play about the tragedies of a family and a community divided by racial intolerance, the love binding a young indigenous couple, the battered but not quite worn-out love of a husband and wife and the fear that makes so many of us turn away from love. And through it all - the train.
