Episode 1.2

Grow You Little Bastard

Episode 1.3

Survived Another Day

Warwick is beginning to face his demons and things are... More shifting. He tries yoga (but fails miserably) and the chooks have laid their first eggs. But there is still a gnawing feeling of loneliness.

Episode 1.4

Coconut Killer

For the first time in a long time, Warwick experiences... More fleeting moments of happiness. Flashbacks from his old life resurface, but he knows he has to face his demons sooner or later.


Are You Here For Me

Positive changes begin to form in Warwick's mind, body and... More soul. His hunting and gathering skills have improved and he feels confident enough to go spear fishing in shark and croc-filled waters.


Don't Be A Dickhead

Warwick has changed. You can see it, he can see... More it. He feels a sense of achievement; he's managed to nail a few yoga poses and his humour is returning. He decides it's finally time to go home.
