This drama focuses on the lives of those struggling against elitism in a society that puts considerable emphasis on status. The fourth series reintroduces a cast of characters in their thirties and well along their individual chosen paths. The stories center on the lives of the characters as they find self respect and help others who are starting out with little or no standing in society. This poignant drama artfully illustrates the dignity of people transcending titles and status.
