Husband and wife GPs Alan and Heather Winterbottom have worked in their idyllic rural practice for more than 40 years, but now they're hanging up their stethoscopes to retire. Joy, celebration or not...
Heather dreams of exploring the Greek Islands, of escaping the shackles of her routine life and embracing a new adventure.
Alan, meanwhile, dreams of growing his own vegetables.
When things come to a head at a family lunch, Heather announces she's taking a year off - from her old life, her marriage, and Alan.
Alone in Greece, she embarks on her own odyssey complete with unforgettable experiences, pitfalls and temptations.
But could what's waiting for her back home be her biggest adventure yet?
