Country Town Rescue


Country Town Rescue follows five families who move to a small town in the Australian countryside. Like many rural locations around Australia, the town is in crisis. Ten years of drought and the promise of a better life in the city has led to many of the younger locals leaving.

But the town isn’t going down without a fight. The idea is simple. Rent out some of the abandoned farmhouses for just a dollar a week and attract new families to the town. As part of the deal, the new families have to be prepared to carry out repairs to the farmhouses and play an active role in the community.

Marriages and relationships will be tested, personalities will clash, lives will be reinvented, and not all the families will stay the distance.
