Smoke Between Trees

Language: VOSE / VOSC
Previously, Mathew Higgins was a white, middle-class guy who led a suburban existence. Now, he is a man shaped by pain;, angry, alone and without a family. When his Aboriginal grandson whom he barely knew re-enters his life, he will try hard to reconcile his deepest pain with the child in front of him.
