Crashing crashes straight into the lives and loves of six twenty-to-thirty-something adults living together as Property Guardians in a disused hospital.

In amongst the asbestos and abandoned x-ray machines live sexually explosive estate agent Sam, frustrated French artist Melody, shy and excitable Fred, and happily engaged couple Anthony and Kate. It's practically peaceful. That is, until the spontaneous arrival of Lulu, Anthony's oldest and least responsible friend...

It's about that time in your life when the reality of being an adult kicks you hard in the crotch. This time you're not someone's kid, you're not a student, and you're not fresh out of uni. This time you're a grown up.

In an age of unaffordable housing and sky-high rents, becoming a Property Guardian has never been so appealing, with thousands of people paying as little as £25 a week to live in unoccupied buildings in exchange for 'protecting' the property from disrepair. Just imagine waking up every morning in your own historic building in the most exciting city in the world. Even if it is an enormous, creepy, derelict hospital.
