Tucked away on the beautiful northern coast of New Zealand is a hideaway paradise called Marlin Bay. People come form all over the world to soak up the sun and ambience at the Marlin Bay Lodge, and gamble in its world-class casino. Behind its serene exterior the Marlin Bay community is divided - between those who live, work and play at the lodge - and the down-to-earth locals. In season two, ruthless developer Robert Glass has plans for Marlin Bay that would see everything change. Lodge manager Charlotte Kincaid finally gets her chance to own the lodge outright, but she is forced to gamble everything she owns to succeed. Meanwhile locals are prepared to use their own brand of bush justice to counter outsiders with eyes on the exploitation of beautiful Marlin Bay.
