In this children's fantasy drama, the everyday trials of teenager Jo Tiegan — school, an archaeological dig — are soon forgotten as a mysterious antique mirror sends her back in time to her house in 1919. There, Jo (Australian actor Petra Yared) encounters 14 year-old Louisa Airdale (Michala Banas). In the time honoured tradition of time travel tales, Jo's excursion threatens alarming present day consequences. The award-winning trans-Tasman co-production was created by Australian Posie Graeme-Evans (who devised TV shows Hi-5 and McLeod's Daughters).

The concept of time travel was a universal genre I thought kids of all ages could relate to. The story came from the whole idea of what would happen if one day you looked in the mirror and saw another face.
– Series creator Posie Graeme-Evans, in The Evening Post, 14 November 1995, page 10
