Laura Price (Saskia Hampele) is a highly successful corporate lawyer. She’s waiting for her next promotion to become a partner in the law firm she works for. Laura is engaged to Owen (Craig Horner), an equally successful lawyer who seems to have little time for her.
One day Laura is approached by Graham Finlay (Martin Portus). He’s an old family friend who owns a million-dollar business, and he wants Laura to convince his grandson, Chip (Liam McIntyre), to take over his business. Laura sees this business opportunity as her chance to make partner. She therefore agrees to travel back to her hometown of Sapphire Cove, a beautiful tropical paradise.
Chip, however, is determined not to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. He wants to keep living a carefree life, fishing, sailing his boat, hiking and horse-riding. He’s very happy to see Laura, his childhood best friend, but finds her very different from when he knew her in childhood.
Laura finds herself reconnecting with her past and discovering what she’s missing in her high-pressured world. Together Laura and Chip discover mutual values and ambitions that they hope will make the world a better place.
