Relationship Stories

A Place to Call Home Synopsis

In the dead of night, Ayesha takes her daughter, Sabina, and slips quietly from her home, leaving behind her abusive husband and a life of pain and heartache. Boarding a coach to London, Ayesha has her sights set on a new life for herself and her little girl. Hayden, a former popstar, has kept himself hidden away for years. In all that time, he's opened up his home to just two people - Crystal, a professional dancer with a heart of gold, and Joy, an ill-tempered retiree with a soft spot for waifs and strays. When Crystal asks Hayden if Ayesha and Sabina can stay with them, he reluctantly agrees. As different as they may be, all these damaged yet loving people quickly form an unlikely bond. So when enemies from the past threaten their peaceful life, they will do whatever it takes to save their home and each other.
