Sean has a terrible confession to make. He wants to tell his sister the unforgivable thing he has done, but just as he gathers the courage to walk through the door of the building where she works, the ground begins to shake and the walls begin to crack.
'Motion Sickness' tracks the interconnecting stories of nine young city-dwellers. Sibling rivalry, ambition, fear and the promise of something better fuel their struggle to cope with the ever-increasing speed of daily life, with its media saturation and high expectations. But these everyday stresses are thrown into relief by a devastating earthquake that changes all their lives.
'[A] finely crafted ensemble piece.' Simon Slade, Adelaide
