When her mother dies from a snake bite, Comity's life in the Australian outback changes for ever.


Now the only person Comity can count on is her friend, Fred, the Aboriginal yard boy. But when her father's new assistant, the cruel and sadistic Quartz Hogg arrives, he sets his bloodthirsty sights on Fred. Comity has no choice but to find a way to stop him...before things spiral dangerously out of control.
