    • Synopsis
    • Young Charlotte Lockton has settled in the North Island with her wealthy husband, David. But her life’s dreams are shattered when he’s murdered on their farm and her baby son is kidnapped. A month after paying a ransom, frustrated with the apathy of the authorities and distrusting of her staff, she decides to track him down on her own.

      And so begins her journey through the wilds of an untamed New Zealand. She comes into contact with Villains, Suffragettes, Hustlers, Chinese Grocers and native Maori Warriors. And she’s forced to join a convoy of Whores, Dancers and Ex-Cons heading for the rough mining community of Goldtown.

      There she meets Joshua McCullen, the owner of the mining town: a man who is key to uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of her son, forcing her to fight to the death for what she holds most dear.
