After a spectacular fall from grace, high-flying heart surgeon Dr Hugh Knight is forced to work as a country GP in his former home town of Whyhope. Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend vows to send him packing.
Hot-shot Sydney surgeon Hugh Knight's lifestyle and attitudes land him on the Impaired Registrants list for a year. Reassigned to his hometown of Whyhope, he arrives in time for this parents' 40th Anniversary party (which is a surprise to him.) Forced to deal with a rural hospital's lack of modern equipment (and the need to fly to outlying areas), and periodic drug testing, Hugh reconnects with old friends and his family, although his father doesn't seem pleased to see him return.
