Starring an outstanding central performance from Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), this uplifting film is heartwarming, funny and emotionally resonant. With a stellar supporting cast including Rhys Darby, James Rolleston, Erana James, Craig Hal and British-American actor Minnie Driver, the comedy was co-produced by the UK’s Kingston Films Productions.





Set in 1981 New Zealand, the arrival of the South African rugby team ignites national protests against apartheid and racism. Josh Waaka (Julian Dennison), a usually passive, mixed race seventeen-year-old, is suddenly moved to stand up for himself and his family for the first time.
