Playing God is a dangerous game When forest protests engulf a tiny Tasmanian timber town, one family´s century of secrets threatens to destroy a marriage - and bring down a government. Matt Abbott, head ranger at beautiful Binburra National Park, is a man with something to hide. He confides his secret to nobody, not even his wife Penny. The deception gnaws away at their marriage. Matt´s father, timber and mining magnate Fraser Abbott, stands for everything Matt hates. Son disappoints father, father disappoints son - this is their well-worn template. But Fraser seems suddenly determined to repair the rift between them at any cost, and Matt will discover that secrets run in the family. When Sarah, a visiting Californian geneticist, tries to steal Matt´s heart, the scene is set for a deadly betrayal.
