Storyline

A character drama set in 1969 in Kings Cross; the time and place Australia came of age and the new generation broke all the rules. It was the Summer of Love. Mick Jagger was in town, Australia was glued to the telecast of the moon landing and American sailors clashed on the street with anti-Vietnam war protestors. We follow Joan Millar, 28, a maverick midwife returning to Australia and five young pregnant women, whose choices for their babies and own lives exemplify the radical changes at the heart of the cultural and sexual revolution. Their lives intersect between a maternity hospital, a home for unwed mothers and the wild streets of Darlinghurst.

Surprisingly Very Good
23 May 2019 | by deborahedenSee all my reviews

I was bored so found this on the 9Now app. I actually have no interest in babies which is why I never watched this. I'm so glad I did what great storytelling. Tackles a lot of issues the cast are great
