Tripping Over - Netflix
Five young people converge for a one night stop-over in Bangkok. Whether it was destined or just a metaphysical cock-up, what happens there will bind them together and profoundly alter the direction of their lives. The series follows the group, both together and separately as they travel to each other's countries or return home some to reinvent themselves, others to find themselves. Woven through their stories are the lives of an older, but not necessarily wiser generation-still living the mistakes of their own twenties. Only one thing is certain, whatever your age, everything looks different from 11,000 miles away.
Runtime: 60 minutes

Tripping Over is a British/Australian six-part drama series. Its first episode aired on Network Ten in Australia on 25 October 2006, and in the United Kingdom on Five on 30 October 2006. In the UK Tripping Over is repeated on Five Life. The show is about three friends in London and two friends in Sydney, neither group knows each other but their parents do. They both take flights to each other's countries, and the two groups meet at the stop-over in Bangkok, where a tragic event changes their lives. The series then follows the two groups of friends as they continue on their trips to each other's countries and back home. The programme focuses on the major life changes that occur during the mid-twenties, and how choices made here can affect a person's life for many years to come.
