In the late nineteenth century a young sailor and aspiring artist, Adolf Gustav Plate, boarded a ship bound for Germany's colonies on the other side of the world. He would never see his parents again. One hundred years later Adolf's grand-daughter, Cassi Plate, retrieved treasures from the bottom of his old sea trunk and began to see the world through his eyes: the eyes of a painter, a photographer, a publisher and a relentless, restless traveller. Inspired by her discoveries, Cassi set out on her own journeys. Travelling across Australia and the Pacific in Adolf's footsteps, exploring the places he tried and failed to make his home, she came to understand what it means to be a restless spirit.
