A scientist obsessed with evolution but unable to have children, a malaria researcher trying to choose between freedom and love, and a washed-up TV svengali whose life goes through a riveting exploration of what conscience means in the 21st century, and how we attempt to make our lives count for something. It is a glorious drama, as well as an old-fashioned tale of modern times.

When Bec Shepherd rejects marriage to a powerful newspaper editor in favour of starting a family with fellow scientist Alex, her sense of right and wrong is put to the test. Bec's brother Ritchie has built a hugely successful career in entertainment, but allegations about his private life are threatening to destroy his marriage, his career and his mind. Does Bec and Alex's relationship stand a chance? Will Ritchie's indiscretions catch up with him?
