After taking out the archery prize at the local show, Storm spots the horse of her dreams, Morning Mist, on the jousting field. Inspired by Frankie's demonstration of natural horsemanship, the headstrong Storm immediately decides to join the Dream Riders and buy Morning Mist with her prize money. But she's told to forget it in no uncertain terms by the owner, Margery, a crotchety widower and champion marmalade-maker who has no time for hippies. As Storm begins learning natural horsemanship with the Dream Riders her extraordinary talent becomes clear. She could ride just about any horse - but she's not prepared to give up on Morning Mist.

              Grief. Recrimination. Redemption. How sixty seconds changed a family. The Brennan family is relishing a relocation from Hobart to the NSW north coast. Artist Finn Brennan is on the verge of his biggest success, working at home on his metal sculptures while caring for two-year-old... son Zac. Bridget, his wife, is back in the field in her job as an environmental scientist and loves it. Fifteen-year-old Jarrah finds it hard fitting into his new school, but the family is delighting in their new surrounds and the subtropical warmth.One morning, tragedy strikes when Zac is found drowned in the family swimming pool. The finger of blame is pointed at Finn and he numbly accepts responsibility. In her grief, Bridget withdraws from her husband. The stakes jump higher when authorities move to prosecute Finn as an example to other pool owners. Defending the prosecution will take every cent the family possesses. Meanwhile, Jarrah must cope with the hole left in his own life by Zac's death, as well as seeing his parents retreat from him in their grief, while also confronting a realisation about his sexual identity. Sixty Seconds treads confidently, but sensitively and poignantly, into the tragic aftermath of losing a child. It explores the immediate explosive effects, and the slow ripples that wash out over the wider community. And it offers the hope of renewal.
