Nisha is a young hotshot executive working for Golden Fields, Australia’s largest producer of rice. Ambitious and headstrong, she’s determined to become the first female Indian CEO in Australia. She’s close to sealing a contract with the Indian government, which would see her company take over India’s national rice distribution system.
A secret deal worth billions.
Working late nights in the office she encounters Yvette, an older Chinese migrant, who cleans up her mess. Yvette has her own entrepreneurial ambitions, but her daughter faces court after participating in a protest against the unethical practices of a national supermarket chain.
The two form a powerful – if unlikely – bond as they navigate the complexities of their lives and the world at large.

The Duchess of Malfi
Webster’s stunning tragedy explores class and gender inequality, misogyny, madness and murder in a High Renaissance court. Recent exposes of toxic masculinity by the #MeToo movement provide one of the many contemporary resonances of the play. This adaptation transports the drama to a powerful celebrity family, set against the backdrop of a 1960’s Italian film studio and the Vatican.
