A black comedy set in the not too distant future. Bloody war has been waged between the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Heather Boatwright has been wounded and writes to her daughter from her hospital bed. She recounts her experiences of the last day of the Civil War, when the South capitulated and the Wellington suburb of Karori was over-run by the invading Northern Army.
