When beautiful young Kiwi Allison Dine arrives in Australia with boyfriend Wayne Robb, she is looking for a chance to leave small-town New Zealand and the pain of her mother's recent death behind. She soon meets Wayne's extended network of New Zealanders including his boss, Terry Clark. Allison is irresistibly attracted to Terry's easy charm, and it seems the attraction is mutual. In fact, Terry sees Allison as a perfect model of a new breed of heroin courier: adventurous, beautiful and a little bit vulnerable.

Meanwhile, straight NSW cop Warwick Mobbs teams with Commonwealth policeman Dave Priest in investigating George Freeman's illegal activities. Mobbs hopes the investigation will lead to some dirt on Trimbole and the Mackay disappearance, but the bent cops in his State department have other ideas.

For Allison, the dark side of Terry's business activities is revealed when she learns of the death of drug courier Harry 'Pommy' Lewis at Terry's hand. But by now she is already in love and in deep. For the kindergarten teacher from Rotorua, the adventure just got scary.
