Isabella and her little sister Catherine aren’t sure about the move to an old homestead on an orange orchard and their stepdad even less so, but their mum has fallen in love with the house.
When they arrive, they realise the photos online have been staged in certain lights and it’s much more run down than expected. Work begins immediately. The new way of making a living is staring at them too – an entire orchard full of fruit that needs to be picked.
No locals respond to their ads and banners put up in their new town, except a Muslim family also new to the area.This shared task brings two cultures together in friendship, support, and laughter, but also brings distrust, hate crimes, jealousy and violence.
Racism is rife within a small pocket of people in this town. Tensions boil over in disappointment, frustration, and fear.
Soon Damaska is defying her impossible grandmother, a young local man is desperate to save his little brother from more harm, and Abel is fighting for his life.
