Description

Civil war in Sydney. Half a million homeless versus the rest. A vengeful defender of the wretched poor - The Hero - fights for them ruthlessly.

Meanwhile, Emma - a minor public servant - creates a scheme to house a thousand homeless in an abandoned hospital. With Adrian, the organiser, and heart-on-sleeve Nat, Emma battles to make The Quarters a safe haven for her residents. Then The Hero moves in and everything becomes too exciting and too dangerous...
