May Callaghan is seventeen years old and on her own. At least that's how it feels. Her devoutly religious mother and her gentle but damaged father are fighting, and May's boyfriend, Sam, has left their rural hometown for Melbourne without so much as a backward glance. When May lies to her parents and takes the train to visit Sam at his shared house in Carlton, her world opens wide in glorious complexity.

May knows too well the toll that war has taken on her father, and the peace movement in the city has a profound effect on her
