At the end of World War II, lovers Eva and Zoe flee to Australia to seek refuge and forge a new life. Their enemies have been vanquished and a new life awaits them but nothing is ever what it seems. As war migrants they struggle with prejudice and intolerance but that is the least of their worries. Eva struggles with the ramifications of her tortured past as she tries to overcome the mental constraints forced upon her. Eva tries to find a way to break the mental shackles but it's harder than she anticipated. Zoe will never be described as a patient woman but for Eva she is willing to wait for those shackles to be broken. In the meantime, Zoe is working in a restaurant and not following her dreams of being an artist. They are about to find out the hard way that moving thousands of miles away does not protect them from those that wish them harm.
