Everything Knill thought he knew was false. Now he must search for where he belongs...
1921. Central Victoria.
Knill McMillan's life is perfectly ordinary: a country upbringing, caring parents, cousins who are his best mates. He is a young man with the world before him.
But he's always had the sense he doesn't quite fit in, doesn't quite belong. And then one night he is brutally beaten. As he lies bleeding on the ground his attacker calls him something that he is unable to get out of his mind. And so begins a journey he never envisaged - to understand who he really is, and where he really belongs.
