For 1970s housewife Penny McVee, the decision to move back up to the lush and idyllic Adelaide Hills was a tough one to make. With her devoted husband Russell and three beautiful kids by her side, she feels ready to embrace the hometown she had left behind so long ago. The long and lazy Summer stretches out before them, promising endless days filled with pool parties, friendship and chocolate fondue. Secrets however, have a way of revealing themselves.
