Hugh Knight (Rodger Coster) is the rising star in cardio-surgery and a devilishly handsome man, whose life turns around when he is sent to work as a general practitioner in the Australian outback. This is a punishment imposed by the Medical Tribunal for his inappropriate behavior that after one night of partying leads to unfavorable consequences. The life-changing event knocks him off his pedestal and sets off a chain of events that may change what he thought will be the worst year of his life into exactly what he needed, but did not realize. Nicole Da Silva (Wentworth) plays the role of Hugh’s ex-girlfriend Charlie, and Ryan Johnson’s part is that of Hugh’s brother Matt. The show is set in a fictional country town of Whyhope.
