Not long after the death of his wife, grieving father George Turner (Erik Thomson) decides to make a fresh start. He quits his job as a popular 800-word columnist for a top Sydney newspaper and impulsively buys a house in a small New Zealand seaside town. But the house is not as idyllic as it looked online, and his teenagers are resistant. With picturesque scenery and quirky locals, this Aussie-Kiwi series is a breakout hit. 8 episodes, 6 hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH.
