Ninety years after they were thought to have died heroically in the Great War, the stretcher-bearer Simpson and his donkey journey through country Victoria, performing minor miracles and surviving on offerings left at war memorials. They are making their twenty-ninth, and perhaps final, attempt to find the country's famed Inland Sea. On the road north from Melbourne, Simpson and his weary donkey encounter society's downtrodden, whom Simpson believes can be renewed by the healing waters of the sea. In a satire of Australian platitudes about fairness and egalitarianism, Macauley asks necessary questions about our national myths.
