An Australian novelist at the peak of her career is in Venice on a fellowship and to launch her latest book. At the launch, she is confronted by a strange episode involving a childhood friend whom she hasn't seen for 20 years. She also meets a beguiling younger man. Past and present begin to intertwine in an intriguing, constantly shifting plot where nothing is exactly as it seems.

"...a dark, strange, moody work that resonates on levels much deeper than the apparent social realism of the play's writing." -Timothy Daly
