Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Author Tom Winton adopts his own acclaimed novel to the screen in this mini-series about two disparate rural families struggling to build a better life in Perth, Australia during the 1940s and '50s. The Lambs are a staunchly religious family who value hard work and faith in God; the Pickles are a hard-luck clan of outcasts. Forced under the same roof in Perth, the two families with nothing in common find that together they have the strength to endure any challenge that life has to offer.
