The series is set against the backdrop of the up-market private hospital, Binneland Clinic in Pretoria. The stories revolve around the lives of a dedicated group of professionals committed to healing the suffering of their patients.
Binnelanders is a story of real people living real lives until a ghost from the past threatens to destroy everything they love.
Zieg Combrink is a successful doctor and part-owner of an up-market private clinic. Surrounded at home and work by a bevy of adoring and competing women, Zieg seems to have everything a man could want, until his life takes an unexpected turn.
First a patient of many years dies, leaving Zieg with a moral dilemma. Then a new nurse arrives at the clinic and appears determined to sabotage him professionally and personally.
When Zieg realises what she is up to he confronts her, only to discover that she suspects him of something terrible.
Zieg knows he's innocent, but has trouble convincing everyone else, leaving his straight-talking wife Karla to try to piece together the sinister events of the past in a desperate attempt to save her family.
