The six-part series follows a group of Brits as they leave dreary post-war Britain in 1956 to embark on a life-altering adventure on the other side of the world. Michelle's character relocates to Australia without her fiancé and will do whatever it takes to try and rewrite her devastating past. 

Faye Marsay and Warren Brown will also star alongside the British actress. The trio will be joined by Australian actors Rob Collins, Leon Ford and Declan Coyle for the show that will be set in both the UK and Australia.

The official synopsis of the drama reads: "For only a tenner, they have been promised a better house, better job prospects and a better quality of life by the sea in sun-soaked Australia. 

"But life down under isn't exactly the idyllic dream the new arrivals have been promised. Struggling with their new identity as immigrants, we follow their triumphs and pitfalls as they adapt to a new life in a new country far from Britain and familiarity.

"At the heart of the drama are Annie and Terry Roberts. They try to make the best of the situation for their family, but the poor living conditions at the migrant hostel and local attitudes towards immigrants test them in ways they couldn't have imagined. They aren’t the only people at the hostel avoiding the truth."
