A year after a devastating flood has killed five locals in an idyllic country town, a mysterious new plant appears. The plant's phenomenal ability to restore youth is so formidable that attempting to harness it means re-evaluating values.
In early 1960s, a teenage girl looking for her real father and a disgraced journalist seeking closure find themselves drawn into a web of secrets revolving around L.A.'s most infamous cold case, the Black Dahlia (Elizabeth Short) murder.
A year after a devastating flood kills five locals in an idyllic country town, a mysterious new plant appears with the power to restore their youth. It's a gift powerful beyond wildest imaginings. A phenomenon so formidable that attempting to harness its potency means re-evaluating everything that's important. It's a miracle some will kill to keep secret.
I watched the entire season in a day, and yes I was hungover. However, it kept my attention the whole time and I got quite invested.
The story - a flood devastates a small, country town in rural Australia and 5 people died. A glowing flower grows where they died and when eaten it makes you young. The storyline is driven forward tackling multiple themes and is both original and engrossing.
The Acting - Superb! Every character is rounded, fleshed out and totally believable in their roles.
The Production - Beautifully shot, a definite Aussie bush feel, a finely crafted production.
Enjoyment - I was fully engaged the whole time.
Rewatch/Recommend - I would not watch it again as it is at times quite heavy and dark yet I will recommend it.
All in all, a stand out Australian production.
