Five singles meet at, of all places, the singles’ table at a wedding. Not only do these five have a common relationship problem. They also find they have a common real estate problem. But on this night, they arrive at a solution – they could pitch in and get a house together. It’s a crazy idea, but it takes hold – and before they know it, they’re at an auction for a five bedroom house. The five are Ainsley, a hopeless romantic for totally inappropriate men; Harry, a secretly gay Indian doctor still living with his mother; Liz, a newly divorced lawyer used to the high life; Ben, a tradie with a heart of gold who lives in a caravan; and Heather, a mum of two adult children who’s on the brink of fifty and desperate for freedom.
The series charts the first year of this unique social, financial and romantic roll-of-the-dice as five utterly different people learn not just to cohabit, but to live together – in each other’s lives, journeying together through disasters, life-turning crises, and moments of love, joy and heartbreak.
