Set on the island of Barbados, "Guttaperc" is the story of Eric, a ten-year-old boy who spends a holiday with his grandparents in the countryside, at a time when the government has just revealed plans to build a tourist resort on the villagers’ land. Eric befriends Sister Pam, an old woman of the village who tells him stories, one of which bears the answer to the future of the village. Soon he comes to the difficult realisation that the venture threatens to displace all the villagers, and that his grandfather will be a major supporter and beneficiary of the project.
