A park. A murder. We enter a world of shadows, with an atmosphere of repressed passion, violence and corruption, a place where a sense of intrigue lurks beneath the appearance of things. It is also a world in which Natalie, a young woman from a small, struggling, Australian fundamentalist Christian community, led by an American pastor, faces the deepest mysteries and conflicts of her life - the truth about the brutal death of her father, her crumbling faith, her awakening sexuality and an extraordinary brain disease that should have killed her but has left her miraculously intact. "Memories of a Brainless Girl" is a story that is sometimes humorous, satirical, thought provoking and moving, about mind, God, miracles, mystery, murder and a girl with "no brain". Based on an actual medical condition.
