Jesse has sworn to protect his sister, Rachel, no matter what. It's a promise that cannot be broken. A promise made in blood. But, when it comes down to life or death, how can he find the courage to keep it?
Set on the back roads of Australia, Blood is a boy's odyssey through a broken-down adult world.
