—Gorgeously filmed and masterfully acted, this acclaimed period drama brims with romance and intrigue—
When nurse Sarah Adams (Marta Dusseldorp) returns home to 1950s Australia after 20 years in Europe, she quickly becomes entangled in the lives of the wealthy Bligh family.
Sparks fly with dashing widower George (Brett Climo), but she clashes with his formidable mother, Elizabeth (Noni Hazelhurst), who enlists George’s devious sister-in-law (Jenni Baird) to disrupt their romance.
Tracking weighty themes of social class, sexuality, and prejudice with insight and intelligence, this award-winning series has earned rapturous praise from critics and fans alike. A PLACE TO CALL HOME explores the ties that hold families together and the betrayals that can tear them apart.
In season 5, dark clouds are forming over Ash Park.
The family will realize that they are vulnerable to the malicious intentions of Sir Richard Bennett and that his entanglement in their financial affairs makes their hold on Ash Park precarious and tenuous.
Could Regina be their only hope of salvation, or is she playing a double game against them?
