After a botched drug deal, Troy (James Stewart) must take his family into Witness Protection in exchange for giving evidence against his former employer, vicious crime boss Nils Vandenberg (Marcus Graham).

With new names and fresh identities, the Quigg family is ripped from their home on the sun-drenched Gold Coast and dumped in a safe house in Western Sydney as the Swift family. Dislocation adds complications to everyone's lives. Troy is unprepared for his undercover role as an academic in the criminology department of an elite university. His teenage son is not prepared to be separated from his gorgeous girlfriend and his daughter has just been suspended from school.

The dysfunctional Swift family has to adapt to their new world while living with the constant threat that a corrupt cop or leak within Witness Protection could destroy their cover and bring those who want Lincoln (Troy) silenced gunning for him and those he loves.

Created and written by Matt Ford. Directed by Shawn Seet, Tori Garrett and Grant Brown. Produced by Diane Haddon and Matt Ford. Executive Producers David Maher and David Taylor. A Playmaker production in association with ABC TV, Screen Queensland, Screen NSW and Screen Australia.
