The story revolves around the protagonist- Danny or Dhananjaya Rajaratnam who is an undocumented immigrant in Sydney. He has been denied refugee status after he fled from his native country Sri Lanka. He is trying to create a new identity for himself. For the last three years, he has been working as a cleaner and lives in a grocery storeroom. He is very close to achieving the perfect 'Australian life' that he had always dreamt of. 

But then one morning, Danny learns a female client of his has been murdered. He later recognizes a jacket left at the murder scene. Danny believes that the jacket belongs to another client — a doctor with whom he knows the woman was having an affair with. Suddenly he is confronted with a choice: should he come forward with his knowledge about the crime and risk being deported, or say nothing and let justice go undone?
