Katie and her boyfriend Feargal have grown tired of the expense and hustle and bustle of Dublin. She's a fashion designer, Feargal teaches woodworking, and both are leaving their jobs to move outside Coimbra, a students' and artists' mecca in the center of Portugal. But neither has employment waiting for them, causing Katie to worry about house prices and renovation costs, while Feargal wants to dive into a renovator's house and use his skills straight away. Balancing prices and uncertain incomes, the couple starts a challenging house hunt with little money but a passion to create new lives, and livings, in the Portuguese countryside.
