Conjoined twins Sea and Sabine live shut away in a cottage in the woods, deep in the Australian bush, together with Wren - the young man who helps care for them. Each are damaged but have found peace in the woods, and the three live in relative harmony and are largely self-sufficient. One day Wren discovers a woman on the road nearby, badly injured and unconscious. He brings her back to the cottage, and he and the twins nurse her back to health. But the arrival of this outsider changes the dynamic in the cottage, with unforeseen consequences.Lyrical and poetic, Fusionis a unique and powerful modern-gothic fairytale that has at its heart questions of selfhood, dependency and love.
