Overview

He was brought in to save Nodoken, and now he may be the end of it all.

Jacob Handsome was born in a small town in Saskatchewan. His life was full of challenges but he managed to pursue his dream and was accepted into the University of Saskatchewan's College of Medicine. While in medical school, Jacob is approached by Dell, the mayor of Nodoken, a small town in Newfoundland. Nodoken's current doctor is dying of cancer, and the clinic is the only thing holding the small town together. Desperate to ensure Nodoken doesn't become another ghost town lining Newfoundland's shores, Dell promises to not only pay for Jacob's salary, but also pay for his last years of med school and provide him with a house, cook, and maid in exchange for five years of his service. Jacob agrees.

After only living and working a short time in Nodoken, Jacob discovers a unique and rich culture of the most clever, ingenious, mischievous, persistent, and hardy people you will ever meet. Finding similarities to his hometown in Saskatchewan, he begins to feel at home in the small town, cherishing its strength and community, and when he falls in love with single-mother Michelle and her daughter, Knell, he wants to plant his roots there. However, just as life falls into place for Jacob, he uncovers a secret about Nodoke -one that, if revealed, might bring about its doom.

As captivating, clever, and mischievous as its characters, Nodoken celebrates life in Newfoundland by showing us "The Rock" doesn't just refer to Newfoundland, it also refers to the people who live there, and the ocean isn't just an enormous expanse of water, it's the heartbeat of every Newfoundlander.
