Armed with the passion to pursue their aspirations, each must find the courage to leave their sheltered lives and head west for adventure and a world of first experiences.
The group's difficult transition into an English life is one full of unexpected moments, heartbreak and humor. The journey ultimately transforms their lives and leaves them contemplating whether to embrace this new world or long for the life they left behind.
A new group of seven young Amish and Mennonite adults are trading in their old world traditions for a new life in Los Angeles. Iva, Lizzie, Betsy and Devon (Amish) and Matt (Mennonite), risk losing everything and everyone they know in pursuit of their dreams.
The cast members make their leap of faith and head to LA in promise of a new world. When they arrive, LA proves to be both exhilarating and exciting, but the vices of temptation aren't far behind. Meanwhile, Lizzie can't keep her secret hidden much longer.
An unexpected visitor enters the house demanding to see Lizzie causing her housemates to smooth over the situation. Meanwhile, the house gets even more crowded when another late comer arrives to join the group and starts up trouble.
The time comes to take the plunge and trade in traditional Amish clothes for a modern English makeover. It is all cause for celebration, until things take an unexpected turn. All eyes are on Betsy as her behavior becomes increasingly suspicious.
Betsy is confronted as more is revealed about what took place at the house one night behind closed doors. Iva calls on her boyfriend Sam to help her in a time of need, but gets a surprise of her own. And the group takes a spontaneous trip to Las Vegas.
The group takes Las Vegas by storm, but it's not all fun and games when Matt is wary of temptation. Betsy's on a mission to expose the truth and has evidence that will change everything.
When Iva's fiance Sam says goodbye, simmering tensions boil over with the group. Matt starts a promising internship with a prominent fashion designer and a surprise baby shower for Lizzie turns sour from Devon's actions.
Devon's exile from the house prompts Matt to preach forgiveness, to a skeptical crowd. Betsy learns surprising news from a genealogist that leads to a spontaneous trip to Mexico. And Matt must deliver the goods in his first fashion industry presentation.
The group travels home from LA with no telling what their fates will be. Matt's reception from his parents is far more dramatic than he ever anticipated. Andrew goes home to mother Mary and when Lizzie goes into labor the father of her baby is revealed.
Sam does not approve of his sister's choices and confronts the father of her new born baby. Lizzie has a big decision to make. Andrew's past comes back to haunt him with his probation officer hot on his trail. Matt reveals big news to the group.
Sam confesses about what happened with Betsy in LA and must face the music. Matt's problems with the law continue and he finds out there is a warrant for his arrest. The groups gather to meet Lizzie's baby and are in for a few surprises.
