A story of courage, friendship and love

While receiving his Journalist of the Year award, a panic attack prompts war correspondent Dan Armitage to evaluate his career. Volunteering as a driver transporting cancer patients, Dan meets four people who realise they share a quirky wit, soaring optimism, and unexpected love for life and each other. Battling through the scariest time of their lives, the friends make a pact to meet up in a year – if they are still alive.

During the difficult months, Dan witnesses a savage beating, dragging him into a world of drugs and crime that has consequences for them all.

Humorous, poignant and life-affirming, When the Mist Clears is a contemporary story of grit, camaraderie, and love in the shadow of adversity.
