Synopsis

Nothing could be worse than the sudden death of parents. One day Nick and Diana Salinger were killed in a terrible car crash, and left their five children all alone.

Charlie, the oldest, has to step in and take care of the family, serving both as father and brother. Bailey, the middle brother, tries to keep everything under control but undergoes an alcoholism problem when he realises he can't do it all.

Julia is a young girl who keeps jumping from one bad relationship to another. Claudia, the youngest girl that plays the violin, has to enter adolescence without any help of parents. Baby Owen was only six months old when his parents died and thus will never know how it feels like to have a mother and a father.

Together, they go through all sorts of problems, from handling their parents' restaurant and trying to keep it running to disastrous relationships and school problems.

Soon they realise that in order to survive no one can be selfish and they all have to help each other. They're a family and have to stick together.

The opening theme song was "Closer to Free", performed by the BoDeans.
