Maureen and Karina had been friends since childhood. However, due to betrayal and grief their lives have taken on very different paths. The other side of town tells the story of the two families, brought together by tragedy.

Maureen marries John Evans and they soon have their fair share of misfortune in life. An accident at work impacts on their lives, forcing them to sell their home and move into social housing and a completely different lifestyle. Maureen soon has to find work with a multinational I.T company called Millbrooks. Tragedy soon finds them again and their life is consumed with grief while trying to find justice. Amidst all this, Maureen befriends a woman called Judith and although she has a chequered past, Judith brings a sense of humour and friendship into Maureen and John’s lives. 

Karina marries Rupert Millbrook, whose family span generations and are so influential that the town is named after them. Karina soon discovers that once you marry a Millbrook, you marry the family and its history! Karina soon becomes managing director of Millbrooks I.T and Maureen’s boss. However, Karina’s life is not without its own difficulties and she soon finds herself struggling with her teenage children and the problems they bring. Rupert has his own problems when a criminal investigation lead by Inspector Hennessy and his team, who are on a special assignment from London reveal links between Rupert's business deals and a known international criminal, Yakov Volkov. As one crime is solved another unfolds, arrests are made and justice is done.
