When Laura Gibson’s (Sigrid Thornton, Wentworth) life suddenly falls apart, she decides to make a fresh start with her two children in a small coastal town. But Pearl Bay isn’t exactly the seaside idyll she remembers from a vacation years before, nor are the locals quite so charming-except perhaps for handsome Diver Dan (David Wenham, The Lords of the Rings films, Top of the Lake).
