Detective Nhu 'Ned' Kelly is back and she wants back into The Job. But Ned's not in great shape, she's wounded, she's focused on revenge and she's been transferred.
The powers that be decide she has the right face for a task force dealing with crime in Cabramatta but it is not the return to duty she was looking for. When a schoolboy is murdered in Freedom Plaza on a hot afternoon the investigation brings her face-to-face with the drugs and violence that are poisoning the suburb and with the struggles and the stories of Vietnamese refugees who live there.
