—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 Cimo), 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.
Season 6 is the final chapter of the Bligh saga. As the 1950s draw to a close in Inverness, the inhabitants of Ash Park each find a way to confront their fears and heal the damage within to finally reach their place to call home.
For some, the challenge is to overcome the mental scarring from their war time experiences, for others, the damage has been done to them by fate, family, friends or foes.
Hearts are on the line as courageous acts of transformation, love, sacrifice and kindness towards one another lead to an evolution to a better version of themselves. Outcomes almost impossible to fathom at the point their journeys began.
