Narelle is Sydney born and bred but lately shes lost her sense of belonging.
Something keeps bringing her back to Pyrmont. This peninsula was her familys bedrock, and the home of her extraordinary grandmother June, who held everything together through the decades: a sons brush with the law, a daughters battles with demons, a husbands decline.
Life revolved around the sugar refinery. For a time this was the sweetest neighbourhood in the country.
But the family bedrock, like the sugar, has dissolved away.
Narelle cant fix the past, but maybe she can fix the future.
A story of Sydney work and corruption, family and massive social change.
A story of how Australia went from working class to middle class.
