It is November 12, 1975. Australia has been thrown into political upheaval with the sacking the previous day of Gough Whitlam as Prime Minister. At Balmain Boys High School, teacher Susan Ross is plunged into her own state of turmoil following the murder of the school's science master - gassed in his own laboratory. Who killed him? The problem is there is no shortage of people who might have wanted him dead: the school's bad boy, the headmaster, the impeccable school captain, the rather vague English master - and that's just the beginning.
It is 1968. In the United States, Martin Luther King has just been assassinated.
In Sydney, Australia, university lecturer and women's liberationist Charmaine Shaw is making enemies. Student and admirer Sue English is not amongst them. As she listens to Charmaine her perspective on life begins to change. When Charmaine is killed, Sue faces the problem of who has killed her and why. The problem is there is no shortage of suspects and it is hard to know who to trust. Even fellow student Rod, first bloke she kissed, doesn't seem exempt from suspicion.
