Urban malcontent Ricky (Dennison) reluctantly goes to the NZ countryside with foster aunt Bella (te Wiata) and her gruff husband Hec (Neill). When a tragic event prompts Ricky to run off, Hec goes after him, but the authorities assume that Hec's kidnapped Ricky. Simple, affecting comedy that builds into full-on action, with great chemistry between Neill and Dennison.
