After a spectacular fall from grace, high-flying heart surgeon Dr Hugh Knight receives a life-changing punishment from the Medical Tribunal — he is forced to work for a year as a country GP in his former home town of Whyhope.

A lot has changed since Hugh last checked into Whyhope. His mother Meryl is a local civic leader, while father Jim has struggled to adapt to the winds of change. His brother Matt has married Hugh's former girlfriend Charlie and the family wheat farm is now home to a successful micro-brewery.

Hugh starts work at the Medical Clinic under the eagle-eye of his supervisor, Penny, juggling everything from tractor accidents to haemorrhoids with the help of "Dr Google". He quickly makes an enemy of hospital administrator Ken, but finds a kindred spirit in the form of party-girl nurse Aoife and rekindles a childhood friendship with knockabout local Joey.
