Set in the multi cultural society of Perth, Western Australia, Eucharist is a unique story of diversities and contradictions. Dhul Fiquari is a young West Australian scientist, born of Iraqi parents. His best friend Josh is Jewish and born of Israeli parents. Dhul is also a pacifist and an idealist. A Roman Catholic priest, a Muslim Cleric and an unorthodox Jew are good friends of Dhul's father, also a Muslim. They form a quirky backdrop to Dhul's own journey, creating a mixture of love and hatred, peace and war. Events from distant shores impact on the community of Western Australia in ways never imagined and have disastrous effects on the lives of many. Dhul's peaceful nature is tested to the extreme and found wanting.
