Urban malcontent Ricky (Dennison) reluctantly goes to the NZ countryside with foster aunt Bella (te Wiata) and her gruff husband Hec (Neill).

- Cast: Ruta Gedmintas, Tom Hughes, Tasha Connor
Joe (Hughes), a successful young architect, has an unplanned kerbside encounter with prostitute Lily (Connor) and then returns to his wife Annabel (Gedmintas) riddled with guilt. Narratively slight but visually striking drama with no backstory or detail to bring any real context; as a result, motivations and behaviour range from confusing to implausible.
