Fran, a thirty-something chisel-wielding woman, encounters a group of men restoring a High Country hut whilst escaping the Queensland summer. She inveigles her way into the work party — a weekend that changes her life.
The ghosts of the pioneer family and a young Aboriginal woman visit Fran during the weekend, and gradually reveal their lives and secrets. Love also pays her a brief visit when she follows Kelvin into the wilderness.
