With America gearing up for war in the Middle East, Tassie Keltjin, a 'half-Jewish' farmer's daughter from the plains of the Midwest, has come to university - escaping her provincial home to encounter a world of culture and politics. As her past becomes increasingly alien to her, Tassie realises she is becoming a stranger to herself.
