Teenager Janey (Alicia Fulford-Wierzbicki) and her little brother, Jim (Aaron Murphy), go on vacation to New Zealand's Mahurangi Peninsula with their parents, Kate (Sarah Peirse) and Ed (Alistair Browning). There, it becomes increasingly obvious to Janey that her parents are drifting apart. Kate is having an affair with a rugged boat captain named Cady (Marton Csokas), while Ed loses himself in whiskey.
