On Australia’s most controversial national holiday, the lives of three Australians from diverse cultural backgrounds will collide, illuminating contemporary issues of racial tension and national identity that simmer beneath the surface of modern Australia. All three are forced to rethink what he or she stands for… and what being Australian truly means. And each must make a profound sacrifice to create a meaningful change. These three stories will interweave and intersect as they heat and accelerate, until they reach their climaxes on that hot, contentious, enigmatic day on the calendar… Australia Day.
