Nell Winters is at the end of a four year sentence for assault and robbery, but with the possibility of parole coming, there's no one on the outside offering her a permanent address, let alone a lift as she walks out the prison gates. Father Tracy Sullivan, a Jesuit priest in Townsville is on a mission. He is setting up a home, a community, for newly released prisoners to help them reintegrate back into society. Louise Wozniak, a recently retired correctional officer, as close to Nell as anyone during her time inside, is looking for something more in the next chapter of her life. Could this unlikely trio of opposites create a home, something approximating a family, where Nell might find a meaningful life where she can move beyond her traumatic past? Set in a prison, a leagues club, the beaches, a church, the mall, a hotel, and finally a home in North Queensland The Goldilocks Zone is a darkly comic, oddly romantic, hopeful story of loves capacity to heal, in the face of addiction, with an ultimately devastating conclusion.
