              Maggie just wanted to help. That's why she worked on the island of Sanlundia, despite the callous indifference of the guards, the bumbling absurdity of her managers, the infuriating stubbornness of the bureaucrats running the camps and the pointless suffering of the detainees. Th...at's why she became determined to tell the truth. That's why she suddenly disappeared, without a trace. A journalist becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to Maggie, desperate to understand the true enormity of events on Sanlundia, a remote tropical island invaded by five allied nations and turned into a dumping ground for asylum seekers, refugees, illegal immigrants and any foreigner deemed undesirable by their host governments. The story explores the relationship between power, alienation and empathy. It follows Maggie's experience on the island, her ultimate fate and considers the price we all pay when we allow the strong to abuse the weak.
