"Something In The Air is the story of a rural town called Emu Springs. A drama about essentially good, uncompromising people with normal human flaws and past histories, but with basic decency and resourcefulness that feeds on just the merest of encouragement. Something In The Air introduces fifteen superbly crafted, loveable characters whose lives provide big, lush broad canvas tales with a dab of the eccentric and the idiosyncratic."
