Set in Darwin during the Japanese bombing raids, we meet characters such as: Horatio Humphris (Horrid Hump), Chief Protector of Aborigines, teetotaller and 42 year old virgin- Ralphie Brown, who has the unedifying honour of being the only public servant to ever be sacked- Drew Hepplewaite, redneck racist and female patrol officer armed with balls of steel- and the Administrator’s wife, Penelope, who has a fetish for anything oriental.

Then there’s Sugar’s mate Nig Nog, who teaches Sugar a few useful tricks of the “trade” while they do time at the Half-Caste Compound- Fuel Drum’s suspicious death at the hands of his six-month-old granddaughter, Honey- and Horseshoe with his wayward and slutty wife, Brumby. With the Aboriginal Ordinances Act and the ‘White Australia’ policy set as a backdrop, Sugar’s resistance to assimilation and the attempts by Horrid Hump and his henchmen to enforce it becomes a protracted battle that ends at the Christmas party from Hell.

Interspersed with illicit affairs, stolen children, leprosy and “fucking foreigners,” this story sees Sugar and her oppressors finally meet on a level playing field that none of them ever expected – a Japanese bombing raid.
