Our drunken protagonist is a totally innocent victim of history—or is he? Latest in a long line of seducers and absconders, he's on the run from his hapu girlfriend in Dunedin and he's just buried his Da. Hopelessly drunk on the Auckland express, he steps out of the wrong door and lies bleeding to death in the snow. In his delirious state, he is visited by the ghosts of his ancestors, and goes on a journey into the past until he finally discovers his own true identity.
Adapted from the novel The Irish Annals of New Zealand by Michael O'Leary.
