'A Book of Doors' is based upon the student radical and cultural movements at The University of Queensland and inner-city Brisbane in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It frames one young woman's perspective of the Vietnam Moratorium protest, and the dramatic personal consequences that resulted from her involvement in this intense period of revolutionary change. The story recalls the violence of the Springbok Tours, the growing Black Rights movement and the Aquarius Festival at Nimbin in 1973.
