'I say to you, Dana, come prepared to enjoy yourself. That's the only way this will work...' When, finally, Dana turns her back on her own career to join her husband Dekker on a company camp in Saudi Arabia, she smothers her apprehension with the conviction that she is doing the right thing. This is the brave new world of the Sixties after all. What harm can come from taking six months, a year perhaps, as time-out? But she is totally unprepared for the harsh reality and restrictions of her new environment, for the frustration and unhappiness she will uncover and for the predicament in which she finds herself. On the one hand she tries to support her friends, on the other she is blind to the traps she herself is falling into. Out of Place is an intense psychological drama about trying to live up to expectations and loss of identity - a story of the intimate lives of ordinary people, their passions, secrets and all-too-human frailties.
