Five young people converge for a one night stop-over in Bangkok. Whether it was destined or just a metaphysical mess up, what happens there will bind them together and profoundly alter the direction of their lives. The series follows the group, both together and separately as they travel to each other's countries or return home some to reinvent themselves, others to find themselves. Woven through their stories are the lives of an older, but not necessarily wiser generation-still living the mistakes of their own twenties. Only one thing is certain, whatever your age, everything looks different from 11,000 miles away.

Finally something real !!
1 November 2006 | by vetty_voopSee all my reviews

Finally we get a TV series where we get to see the acting talent! Episode one was excellent! The script gave us a little more than usual, yeah, there was still the "i'm not your father -i'm your father and omigod you cheated on me!" rubbish but the script allowed the actors to actually feel and live those real moments rather than show us what it would feel like if -like so many TV soaps do.

The camera work also gave us a little more than usual, there were no boring shots of repeated angles for hours yet there was no unnecessary 'shots inside shots or hand-held camera crap' to add an "artistic" edge it gave us what we needed to see and also some beautiful scenery pictures as well!

Nothing was over-dramatised or melodramatic they were real people in a real place dealing with real situations, the show lacked nothing in drama and was completely relevant. It was SUCH a relief to be exposed to real acting and so nice to let our country see just how talented our actors can be when given a real script, a real opportunity! Thank you Tony Tilse, Sam Miller, channel ten and all cast and crew -wonderful work!! please continue what you are doing, your efforts are much appreciated and do not go unnoticed!
