A darkly humorous fable about the consequences of a culture of disposable youth
Something strange is happening in the country town of Hollow. When a syndrome which seems to strike only at the young begins to kill off the town's children, authorities quarantine the rural community.
Three final year school students – Tania, Phil and Sally – are getting ready to move on – but to what and to where? Success in economics and account exams may be the only passport out of a place which goes out of its way to promise them little.
As the mysterious outbreak reaches epidemic proportions, friendship and alliances are stretched to the breaking point, while choices between life and death become simultaneously fantastical and apocalyptic.
