Written by Matt Cameron

One 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.

Gwen’s unnatural pregnancy escalates rapidly as Max’s growing paranoia puts her life in danger, while Sam’s attempt to help Tina makes him the lead suspect in Griffo’s murder.
