Summary
Dhananjaya "Danny" Rajaratnam is an illegal immigrant in Sydney, Australia, denied refugee status after he fled from Sri Lanka. Working as a cleaner, living out of a grocery storeroom, for three years he's been trying to create a new identity for himself. Danny learns a female client of his has been murdered. The deed was done with a knife, at a creek he'd been to with her before; and a jacket was left at the scene, which he believes belongs to a doctor with whom Danny knows the woman was having an affair. Should he come forward with his knowledge about the crime and risk being deported? Or say nothing, and let justice go undone? -- adapted from jacket
