    'One street. Three couples. A world of possibilities.

    'In 1989 the Newcastle earthquake opens up faultlines in the relationships of three couples who reside in adjoining terraces, changing their lives irreparably. Each of those six people has to discover new ways to negotiate marriage and infidelity, careers and unemployment, friendship and loss. First they need to learn how to survive each day. Then, a decade later - as the city's major employer, the steelworks, shuts down - they must begin to live as if each night were their last.'
