(one-hour television drama series)
In this dramedy, a disgraced right-wing politician, Sydney Whalen (35), flees to the coastal village of Buddha Falls, B.C. to recover from a shattering election loss and to build a relationship with her recently-discovered half-sister Rhianna. But she also has a secret mission: to help ease the passage of a controversial pipeline her new employer (a multinational energy company) wants to build through this left-leaning bohemian community.
