Sailing into another new port, he is surprised to meet up with an old friend and a group of other misfits – all miles from the countries they once thought of as home. They come together in a No Man’s Land that is as transient as anything else in their lives. But can any of it last, especially when there is a cyclone bearing down on them…?
