Synopsis

The Heights is a ground-breaking serial drama about a community trying to protect its way of life, while under the constant threat of gentrification and the social stratification of its neighbourhood.

The ‘slice of life’ drama explores the relationships, work lives and everyday challenges faced by six families living in the Arcadia social housing tower and the gentrifying inner-city district that surrounds it – Arcadia Heights.

The series presents a medley of characters, cultures, classes and backgrounds from the ‘tower’ community, exploring their relationships, work lives and everyday challenges faced by its characters in an entertaining relationship drama series.
