Paula Chalmers is a newcomer to the small outback town of Coolabah. During her year on the local Council, while struggling with her failing marriage, she becomes irrevocably drawn into a maelstrom of dysfunctional behaviour beneath the painfully thin veneer of respectability that is Coolabah.
Paula abandons her reserve, prepared to face failure and alienation.
Backyard examines the links that bind individual consciousness and self-awareness to the necessarily evolutionary progress of social change. In the context of a racially hostile community where opinions are hotly emoted rather than sensibly reasoned, Paula finds a thread that binds the townsfolk to an untenable hypocrisy.
