A Place to Call Home is a period drama series set in Australia during the 1950s. The show premiered in 2013 and ran for six seasons until 2018. The series follows the life of Sarah Adams (Marta Dusseldorp), a nurse from the UK who returns to Australia after 20 years to start a new life.

Sarah is introduced as a strong-willed and independent woman who is determined to leave her past behind and start anew. She finds work in Inverness, a small town in New South Wales, where she meets the wealthy Bligh family who take her under their wing. The Bligh family consists of Elizabeth (Noni Hazlehurst), a formidable matriarch, her son George (Brett Climo), his wife Regina (Jenni Baird), and their daughter Anna (Abby Earl).

Sarah and George immediately form a connection, one that is forbidden due to George's marriage to Regina. Throughout the series, the delicate dance between Sarah and George's feelings for each other unfolds as they navigate the societal norms and expectations of the time.

The series touches on several themes, including family, love, betrayal, and prejudice. The Blighs are a family with many secrets, and as the series progresses, the skeletons in their closet are revealed one by one, causing tension and conflict within the family.

The show also tackles several social issues, including homosexuality, racism, and sexism. It explores the prejudices and discriminations of the time and the effect they had on individuals and society as a whole.

In addition to the Blighs, the show features several other prominent characters, including Sarah's boss, the charismatic Dr. Jack Duncan (Craig Hall), and the town's priest, Father Abbot (David Berry). Each character has their own story to tell and their own struggles to overcome.

As the series progresses, the characters evolve and grow, undergoing personal transformations that are both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Their journey is accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack and stunning visuals of the Australian countryside.

Overall, A Place to Call Home is a captivating and emotional journey that captures the essence of the 1950s in Australia. The show is well-written, well-acted, and beautifully shot. It is an ode to the resilience of the human spirit and the power of love and belonging.
