10 Episodes

Experienced police detective Allison McLean is starting to realize how personal law enforcement can get. When an arrest warrant is issued for her brother, Tim, accused of aggravated assault, she and her partner, Devin, must arrest him. When Tim is convicted and imprisoned, his two teenage children are left on the brink of being sent into foster care. Allison doesn't want that to happen and does what she thinks is the right thing to do by welcoming her niece and nephew into her home -- to go along with the two she already has with husband Matt. Now with four teenagers under one roof, Allison and Matt's strength and patience are really tested. While Allison is out investigating crimes and bringing criminals to justice, the teens are experiencing the ups and downs of teenage life -- including love, anger and jealousy. Tim's kids also have to adjust to their new home and new school.
