Heath and his boyfriend Jarrod are attacked outside a Sydney pub one night in a brutal gay bashing. Jarrod dies but Heath survives, although he is not really among the living. The pain of the loss and guilt over surviving makes it hard to go on. Heath has always believed in the prescience of his dreams, and one night he dreams of Jarrod in Africa, among the Maasai. With very little planning or thought, he books a one-way ticket to Tanzania.
