Bonnie is a child raised in a small town in New South Wales in the fifties with her five siblings. Her oldest brother Keith, returns to boarding school and her mother leaves without warning, taking the two youngest, Zilla and Tippy with her. Bonnie and her brother Ross learn to survive the new live-in partner and isolation with a spate of chemistry experiments and imaginative adolescent pranks. This results in severe punishment and greater reason to explore the realms of their magic. Adventures unfold around simpler times where the freedom of the bush and a bleak emotional upbringing join to create a bond between brother and sister that will take you on a comical and heart wrenching journey.
