An inherited Burmese artefact challenges a young mother's ideas and marriage, leading her into great danger
Natalie is a young Gold Coast mother with a loving husband, two small children and a happy lifestyle.
While helping her mother move house, she finds a little box containing a Burmese artefact. When Natalie learns its unique history through a letter left by her great-great uncle, it ignites an interest in its country of origin and her uncle’s unfulfilled plans for this curio.
Her investigations collide with her own dramatically changing circumstances and create a catalyst for a moral dilemma that challenges the core of her marriage as she finds herself immersed in two very different golden lands.
