Once the accusation is made, Lucas is deemed guilty by the community-turned-mob, and hunted by his former friends and neighbours.

It ends two days later on a beach with them trying to push a car clear of the waves. A life has been lost, self-respect shattered, friendships and possibility marriages destroyed.

December 10th – The Sapphires
In 1968,four Aboriginal women from the soul group The Sapphires under the tutelage of alcoholic, Irish talent scout Dave Lovelace.
