A studio sitcom set around the antics of Jimmy and his ragtag family of Mountain Rescue volunteers.

When the naïve and enthusiastic Conor reports for his first day as a volunteer, Jimmy, the shambolic old rescue hand, takes it upon himself to teach him the 'ways of the hills'.

Conor's education begins in the Busted Femur pub, where he's introduced to no-nonsense barmaid Jules and fellow mountain rescuer Bill, who spends every living hour looking after his dogs, resulting in somewhat questionable social skills.

As if that's not enough to contend with, Conor later meets Bernie, the mountain rescue team's head of operations; a woman who's happy to the point of delirium in her work.

When the actual mountain rescuing begins, things go from bad, to worse, to even worse than that.
