The show is hosted by Ray Martin and is based on a UK format that’s been adapted for an Australian audience. It aims to answer one question – can eye contact alone repair a broken relationship?

Once their time is up, they have time to themselves in separate rooms where they then decide if they want to meet again and talk or if they’ve had enough and never want to see each other again.

The 17 couples featured in the six part series range from an estranged father and daughter to former child solder Ayik who faces his former prison guard.

Viewers took to social media after the first episode last week to describe it as "absolutely gutwrenching" and "the most emotional and confronting TV [I] have ever watched".

"THIS is how TV should be used. As a medium to tell powerful HUMAN stories of love, healing, growth, unity. and forgiveness. Let's showcase humanity being its best version. So we can all become our own best version. God this is good. No... GREAT," wrote another.

It's simple yet powerful television that's handled beautifully.

"Everyone I've spoken to who has watched the show has dissolved into a puddle of tears just describing the moment they watched it," Mamamia Entertainment Editor and The Binge host Laura Brodnik said on the latest episode.

"There's no live audience or crazy Dr Phil coming in and questioning them, just two people deciding whether they can forgive and reconnect and you just watch it happen."

The six part series is on SBS on Wednesdays at 8:30pm and is also available to stream on SBS On Demand.
