“When I first arrived in this prison, the cold whiteness of the walls and the thin bedding and the icy cruelty of the guards kept me occupied.”
Hilda travels to Japan to research The Factory, a controversial arts community that collapsed twenty years earlier. But when The Factory is re-formed by old members, Hilda is drawn into a complex intrigue of love, betrayal and revenge. The secrets she uncovers and the ties she forms will push her to the edge.
This is the story of one young woman’s heroic journey to survive, escape and soar above her shocking childhood experiences, and her powerful struggle for freedom and a beautiful life in Australia.
