The show is about three friends in London and two friends in Sydney, neither group knows each other but their parents do. They both take flights to each other's countries, and the two groups meet at the stop-over in Bangkok, where a tragic event changes their lives.
The series then follows the two groups of friends as they continue on their trips to each other's countries and back home. The program focuses on the major life changes that occur during the mid-twenties, and how choices made here can affect a person's life for many years to come.
