When 'Cyclone Tracy' rips through Darwin on Christmas Eve 1974 Leisa is distraught when she loses not only her home but also her precious Siamese cat 'Tia'.

Based on a real experience told to me by a friend. After careful research into the history and aftermath of the disaster I was able to shape a story with an authentic background.
