TVNZ series: Tamati Coffey follows the fortunes of City dwellers as they turn their backs on city life and attempt to forge new futures and better quality lifestyles in Provincial New Zealand.
With the average cost of an Auckland house heading towards a million dollars, there is a new kind of refugee in New Zealand - the Kiwi whānau looking for a nest.

So what's the answer? More and more, whānau are finding they can discover the lifestyle they want outside the city limits - and this series follows whānau as they pack up their lives in the city and start over in regional New Zealand.
