An educated Indonesian man flirts with a young Australian girl on a Bali beach. A policemen recounts the horror of a terrorist bombing, a muslim woman rages at late night television and two drug traffickers have second thoughts in a cheap hotel room.
Set on the eve of the Bali Bombings - each of these stories and many more are interwoven through-out the play, creating a tapestry of modern Australia - colliding with the culture of a mysterious land.
Each thread, character and situation revolves around the other - appearing and reappearing, echoing words and events though monologue and scene, satire, drama, shadow puppetry and comedy - before culminating in the event that shook Australia to its core.
