1919. The Spanish flu epidemic is raging. In the NSW town of Flint, Quinn Walker returns to the home he fled 10 years earlier when he was accused of an unspeakable crime. Aware that his father and uncle would surely hang him, Quinn hides in the hills. There, he meets the orphan Sadie Fox - who seems to know more about the crime than she should.
