Environmental activist Kyle has just arrived in Darwin for a temporary job checking gardens for diseased vines. Seems easy enough, but Kyle’s job also involves working undercover-befriending a chopper pilot who may be bringing in illegal bugs into the country. They take infection and the threat of a pandemic very seriously in the Top End.
As Kyle gets to know Darwin’s eccentric locals and backpacker scene ,he realises that his task may not be easy. Kyle finds himself face to face with a croc,some of the friendly locals turn out to be ‘feral’ and working undercover is complicating life with his housemates., especially as his chief suspect looks like becoming a good friend. Is this pandemic threat real , or is it just media hype?
