Sparks fly when three sisters reunite to mark the passing of their mother among the sugar cane plantations of far North Queensland. Successful opera singer Cressy clashes with her youngest sibling Nona, who is desperate to find connection with Cressy and Mae. A storm is brewing in this wild corner of Australia, and some harsh truths float to the surface before their mother’s ashes are given the appropriate send-off.
