Sydney, 1973: The Opera House is new and so is the government.
Australian bands are hitting international airwaves as well as those of the new Youth Radio station, Double J.
For Jess, scar-faced and painfully self conscious, city living is totally intimidating. But then she sees an artist drawing houses and a girl she knew at school… and meets Stuart, who is something else again…
Almost before she knows it, Jess is handing out leaflets, going to meetings, getting involved at rallies. The time comes, though, when it’s not enough just to listen anymore.
Jess Halloran has something to say.
Set in Sydney during the 70s, an era of rapid political and social change, the events of Time Out centre on the green bans movement, with its concern for social justice and environmental activism.
