From the creator of Packed to the Rafters comes the sweeping and romantic drama, A Place to Call Home.
It tells the story of a mysterious woman perched between the harsh legacy of World War II and the hope of a new life in Australia and of a wealthy family forced by her to embrace the winds of social change.
Four years later and we pick up the lives of the Bligh family's Anzac Day, 1958. Sarah comes into conflict with the hierarchy at the hospital over the misdiagnosis of an indigenous man, and challenges George over what religion David should be raised in.
Two months have passed and Douglas has had a cancerous lung removed. George meets with a Rabbi in the city to discuss the process of conversion when he receives news of Regina's release. The family is sent into a tailspin, fearful of the repercussions. Carolyn clocks Jack's reluctance to change but busies herself advocating for Frank's art.
Sarah is plunged into a dark place and must confront the demons of her past. Roy confronts Larry about his involvement in the burning down of Frank's shack. Larry is taught a valuable lesson and is redeemed. Douglas finally realises his prognosis and asks for assistance to die. Anna defends herself against Sir Richard in an attempted rape. She flees to Ash Park where she and Carolyn realise that Regina may deserve their trust.
One month later, in the midst of the family's grief, George must deal with a rabid Sir Richard keen on finding out George's decision regarding the upcoming federal election. Olivia returns home without James. Henry and George deal with the grief of rejection. Sarah realises Elizabeth's complicity in Douglas' death and counsels her with sage advice.
The family convenes and agree to come up with a plan to wrestle control of Ash Park from Sir Richard. Elizabeth receives news of an extraordinary nature. George questions the value of trying to save Ash Park. Perhaps it would be easier to sell it off and walk away? The Inverness fete becomes a hotbed of tension, as Carolyn expresses her frustrations.
Elizabeth's cloud of grief begins to break. Jack is asked to assist in Sir Richard's downfall. Sarah still harbours doubts about Regina's motives for helping the family. Sir Richard pays Elizabeth a visit. His veiled threats send a tremor through the family.
Two weeks until the federal election and Jack embraces a rigorous campaign schedule. Sir Richard's suspicions of a subterfuge deepen. Elizabeth launches Douglas' veteran's fund to representatives of the Australian-Aboriginal Fellowship. With one deft strike, Sir Richard's destruction of Jack Duncan looks complete. A body is pulled from the river.
