Synopsis

Teddy Broderick has lived on her farm almost all her life, committed to the rhythms of the country - seeding, harvest, shearing and the twice daily milking of the cow her grandmother has looked after for years, but she dreams of another life, in the wide world away from the confines of her property.She thinks she knows her home and its community inside out, until her grandmother Deirdre announces there is a house buried on the property, and Will Hastings, an archaeologist, is coming to dig it up again.As they work together to expose Deirdre's past to the light, the stories they tell bring them together and pull Teddy further away from her home.But what is hidden in Deirdre's childhood house that she needs to see again before she dies - and why? What is it that stops Teddy from living the life she truly wants? And will she ever find her freedom?
