Ten unruly British teenagers are sent to live with strict families in five different countries in an experiment to find out the right way to bring up a child.
Lizzie and Stefan spend a week under the strict regime of the Adegas, a typical middle class, Christian family in Ghana. Relationships are forbidden and children must do household chores before school. At school Lizzie gets into trouble for falling behind and as the teens get closer, mum Vida is uncomfortable with their relationship.
At the beach, Lizzie reveals too much of her body for Vida's liking, but as the week progresses they begin to bond, while Stefan turns into a productive member of the household.
As the teens head home, thanks to the Adegas they're keen to change their ways.
