The ever optimistic Mr Micawber bids a fond farewell to David Copperfield, taking his family to Australia, confident their lives will change for the better. However, florid language and optimism is not enough to survive the brash life of Melbourne in 1855. Visits from the bailiffs, rent arrears, and his daughter Emma's betrothal to his landlord's son, all complicate Micawber's life. However, when his son Wilkins introduces a young man with an ambiguous past, who also has designs on Emma, it becomes even more tangled. Micawber turns detective, but will the mystery he uncovers threaten even his optimism and integrity?
