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.

Amazing
27 January 2021 | by cjandtSee all my reviews

Started watching after my dad died and my mom slept over on the weekends. We didnt get the whole thing at times and it was hard to catch in Canada so I ordered all 4seasons from amazon Australia. I cant watch this in the entirety. Its relateable and classy. It tells a big picture with many secrets but not far fetched. Gravity in friendship. All actors are amazing. Honestly its incredible. So fortu eate to have this video. Cant wait to pass it around. Better than netflix series.
