Summary
In September 1971, 181 numbered marbles roll around in a barrel while Australia holds its breath. The last number drawn will shatter two women's lives, and bring them together agaiin. 21 years earlier, pregnant sixteen year-old Caroline Miki Patrick finds herself in the iron embrace of St Anthony's home for wayward girls. Miki's best friend Jude convinces her they can raise the child together and take to the road. But the teenagers are ill-prepared for the hardships they face, and after one particularly difficult night, fate separates them. Alone, poor and scared for her baby's welfare, Miki ultimately surrenders Dominic to the home. Two decades later, Miki is a dangerous woman, and she is on the run. A vocal anti-war activist who assists draft dodgers, Miki is hiding from the Federal Police and never stays in one place very long. That is, until Dominic's birthday is drawn in the conscription lottery and Jude steps back into her life. Now, will Miki and Jude stop at nothing to be reunited with him?
