Wakefield is a gripping psychological mystery set in the spectacular Blue Mountains. It unfolds with a potent blend of non-linear narrative, fantasy, music and dance that brings to life the fascinating characters — staff and patients — who populate Ward C. At the centre of the show is Nik — a gifted psych nurse, blessed with a powerful combination of common sense and intuition. Nik is easily the sanest person in what is a pretty crazy place. But when a song gets stuck in his head, a dark secret from his past begins to intrude into his present, forming an intriguing puzzle that comes together as the series builds to its heart wrenching conclusion.

James is a running his finance business from the ward. Ivy is running from the screaming baby she can't bond with and when a song gets stuck in Nik's head, it triggers deeply buried memories he doesnt understand.
