At their home on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, Gabriel Nagy’s family receive a mysterious letter in the mail. Twenty-three years previously, they lost a husband and father with no explanation – a man who simply vanished without a trace. Now they are about to discover what really happened all those years ago.
Although it played out mostly in Australia, Nagy’s story actually began thousands of miles away in Germany. There his parents met and fell in love in the aftermath of the Second World War. However, prospects in the country were bleak, and soon the couple decided to seek their fortune elsewhere.
When Nagy was just a young boy, his family emigrated to Australia. But while they soon settled in Sydney in New South Wales, life was far from easy. In fact, Nagy claims that he was often left to care for his ailing mother while his father regularly worked away from home. Eventually, however, he grew up and started a family of his own.
