Description "In 1998, one of the most dramatic events in recent Australian history took place. It was the culmination of a tightly planned scheme between the Federal Government and a stevedoring company in an attempt to smash the Maritime Union of Australia - the wharfies. Katherine Thomson's gripping new drama is set against the backdrop of this explosive industrial dispute."
