Thrive is about three young people that didn't go looking for suffering, but suffering found them anyway. When Ollie, Ashleigh and Raph are thrown together by the sudden death of someone they knew, they find themselves wrestling with the turbulent emotions that painful events throw up. Join them on their journey and stand side by side with them as they recover, survive and maybe even Thrive.
