Overview

Say goodbye to the patriarchy

After a disastrous exhibition and finally driven to distraction by her neighbour's leaf blower, artist, divorcee and emotional abuse survivor Alethea Braxton finally decides it's time to escape her lonely, unfulfilling suburban life.

Lured by an enticing website she travels to Yindisha - a women's health retreat deep in the Australian bush - that promises pleasure, empowerment and transformation.

Yet something sinister lurks beneath Yindisha's veneer of healthy feminine happiness. For a start, this secretive retreat that worships nature and Mother Earth is staffed by an ever-changing supply of impossibly beautiful, attentive, respectful men. And what's going on inside that tightly fortressed research station down the road?

As the inquisitive and stubborn Alethea embarks on her life's greatest creative challenge, she discovers - in this place where science, magic and ancient mysticism meet - there's no going back. Healing and transformation come with strings attached. And there's always a price to pay for messing with Mother Earth's mysteries.
