Billy is already experiencing the ugly side of people's fear and prejudice. He decides to take a job on a farm far away from his home town. He hopes it will be a fresh start. In a twist of irony and as fate would have it, he encounters the very thing he has tried to leave behind; he meets Tom the farmers son. Tom is beautiful and fearless, with the arrogance of privilege and youth. The tension is further under-pinned by the social repression and isolation of rural New Zealand in 1960. A tinder-box of deceit and malice emerges as Billy discovers that he is not the only one fighting his desires and hiding his demons.
