Celeste was once Australia’s most beloved opera singer. Yet she threw it all away to follow the man she loved to live on a crumbling property deep in the rainforests of Tropical North Queensland. Ten years after his tragic death, Celeste is ready to make one final return to the stage. But her stepson Jack, still haunted by the past, arrives at her behest amidst the preparations for the performance and finds Celeste is as he remembered – beautiful, intoxicating and dangerous. But when she asks Jack for an impossible favor, the secrets that drove them apart explode back into rhapsodic life.
