Synopsis

The O.C. - also known as Orange County, California - is an idyllic paradise, a wealthy, harbour-front community where everything and everyone appears to be perfect.

But beneath the surface is a world of shifting loyalties and identities, of kids living secret lives hidden from their parents, and of parents living secret lives hidden from their children.

The O.C. tells the story of the Cohen, Cooper, and Nichol families, and Ryan Atwood, a troubled teen from the wrong side of the tracks, who is thrust into this world and who will forever change the lives of the residents of The O.C.

When the philanthropic Cohen family take in outsider Ryan Atwood, they have no idea how his presence will effect them.

Their awkward adolescent son, Seth, finds a friend and brother in Ryan to share his quirky way of looking at the world and to help him overcome the trials and tribulations of winning the heart of Summer Roberts, his lifelong crush.

Meanwhile, Ryan falls in love with Marissa Cooper, the beautiful girl next door, but their romance is constantly tested by their inability to escape the past.
