The first season, a stranger’s death draws 18 year-old Jay to London where he meets the Mackinnons and the Loxleys, two families with an age-old history of bad blood. Posh girl, Marla Mackinnon who is played by Lara Goodison, falls for Jay, but Mack (Dermot Martin), her controlling dad doesn’t stand for it. Olive Loxley (Billie North) is dreaming of escape from her over-protective sister, Toni (Jess Dickens) and their family cafe.
