When Carmen's friends, Molly, Lydia and Yvonne, are attacked by an ASIO operative, they show up at Maralinga hospital and confront Leo about the incident and question how it is that ASIO knew where to find them.
At Maralinga in 1956, atom bombs were not the only things being tested. At the height of the Cold War, the human capacity for loyalty and betrayal were constantly pitted against each other. But not just in terms of espionage. Friend against friend. Lover against lover. Government against its people. If only trust could bloom in an infinite desert. But these are not trusting times.
