Series 3 of Westside continues the saga of the West family, as they march through history. It is 1982 now, and as New Zealand heals the wounds of the Springbok tour, the Wests also have some healing to do.
This time round, the story of the Wests is, literally, the story of two houses. In Henderson, at the West house, Ted is having his fair share of problems with a gang who have grown apathetic with the spoils of their recent success; while Rita is dealing with the empty nest left by the abrupt and acrimonious departure of her only son.
This two houses lark is a situation that cannot be sustained, but it will take a tragedy to bring the family back together and, out of that, for father and son to realise that to survive they must work together.
