Claire is a paediatric surgeon, newly returned to Auckland, city of her birth, from London, where she has been in full retreat from her past life. She’s back on a trial basis, to oblige her partner Yossi, and she brings with her Roimata, her 15-year-old daughter from a brief liaison many years before. The sole condition she imposed on Yossi when consenting to the trip was that he was not to ask about her past. Ever.
