Imagine a world lousy with betrayal and intrigue, where survival depends on allegiance to tribe - where happiness is an unexpected luxury and the future is clouded by chaos and barbarism. Sound like the Dark Ages of Arthurian legend? Try a typical high school, at the dawning of the twenty-first century.

It's a world where, at fourteen, Gwen Jones doesn't fit in - doesn't want to fit in. Years of living on the run have taught Gwen to trust only her mother. But now her mother's ill, and Gwen's world has been turned upside down. She's living with strangers in a strange country, a strange town, going to a strange school. Gwen doesn't know it yet, but things are about to get a lot stranger.

From 1970 to 1972, Hamilton was the co-convener of the Australia Party. He headed the run for Parliament and his party was successful in having several senators elected. Upon Hamilton’s departure for America, the party provided the nucleus of the Australian Democrats, led for many years by Don Chipp. Hamilton was also involved in the “It's Time” campaign, along with Mick Young and Clive Holding. Hamilton also devised and appeared in a TV commercial for the Philip Morris cigarette brand “Kingford”. The commercial won the Logie award for Best TV Commercial in 1974, but resulted in Hamilton's dismissal from “Division 4”, as his appearance violated a contract clause specifying that series regulars wouldn't appear in television commercials. He went on to host his own national variety shows on the ABC: Ted Hamilton's New Wave and Ted Hamilton's Musical World. 1975 because of his chairmanship of: The TV-Make It Australian Committee, the doors to Australian commercial television slammed. Hamilton was banned from Channel 9 by Clyde Packer, and informed that he would not be employed by the networks again, (he has not been employed by 7 or 9 since). Facing this restriction in a television dominated profession; Hamilton moved his family to the United States and established a successful acting and corporate career. In 1980, when Rupert Murdoch attempted to establish a television presence in Australia, he acquired the Ten Channel in Melbourne. He invited Hamilton to return to Australia, to host The Ted Hamilton Show. However, the Broadcasting Control Board opposed his ownership and Murdoch quickly surrendered the idea, and sold his interest. In 1981 Hamilton starred in The Pirate Movie with Christopher Atkins and Kristy McNichol. Hamilton and his partner David Joseph produced The Pirate Movie, the first Australian movie to receive a general release in the United States (2,500 screens 20th Century Fox). Hamilton provided development finance for The Wild Duck (Liv Ullmann and Jeremy Irons) for J. C. Williamson productions, and The Flight of the Navigator for Disney Studios.
