Underwater, off the coast of Broome, an English deep sea diver suffers acutely from the bends. As he ascends slowly to the surface, in his fraying mind he wrestles with a Chinese Sea Dragon and reconsiders the myths that fuelled a failed push to rid the pearling grounds of "Asiatic" divers. It is 1913 and the White Australia Policy is tightening its grip.
A time-crossing radio play that weaves myth and poetic realism together.
