It's in the early years of the new South Africa and, despite its geographical remoteness, nestling in the foothills of the Drakensberg, one farm's community finds it is not immune to the legacies of the past and a society grappling with the trauma and consequences of apartheid.

Dirk and his twin sisters, Pat and Lerryn, have joined their high-flyer father, Tom, after his 'retirement' move to the small conservative town of Fynberg with his young, new wife. His purchase of the town's only restaurant and investment in a nearby farm, Caracal Ridge, sets in motion a chain of events that will influence their lives and the lives of some of those around them forever.

As the family negotiates the twists and turns of their changing country and the challenges of reinventing the farm, and themselves, they find they have to deal with unexpected situations. Some terrifying, some enlightening, they allow those in Caracal Ridge's community the opportunity to fully appreciate each other.
