The wheels in the gravel driveway. The door. Him coming home. I was waiting because I hadn't seen him in a long time. I hadn't been alone with him in so long…

After a decade under siege a city has finally fallen. But ten years of rage have taken their toll. For an officer returning from this epic overseas campaign, it is time to put the horrors of battle behind him, and to take back his place at the family table.

For the officer's wife, it is time to take her revenge…
Tom Holloway's ‘epic-in-miniature' is inspired by Aeschylus' Agamemnon and a truly contemporary Australian landscape — with breathtaking results.
