Rival families battle for supremacy in an industry where very few make it. Alex loves crushing rock. He's addicted to the dust, the noise, getting amongst it. Bill is Alex's father. He doesn't suffer fools gladly and he's as hard on himself as he is on others.There's a lot more to him than his abrupt manner suggests. Justine is ambitious and ruthless. She's clawed her way to the top and intends staying there at any cost. Swimming with the sharks in the ocean might be safer than dealing with the sharks circling back on land.
