This film screened 6th October 2016 & 16th March 2017.

Wide-eyed, rebellious ’gangsta’ Ricky is bounced to yet another foster home on the edge of the New Zealand wilderness. For the welfare worker he’s a ‘real bad egg’, but kindly foster Aunt Bella wins him over, helped by the gift of a dog he calls Tupac. Then circumstances change and Ricky finds himself on the run with grumpy foster Uncle Hec (Sam Neill) who is accused of his kidnapping. The misfit pair must learn to get along as the police get closer. A freshly told adventure story filled with heart, humour, and ‘trees, birds, rivers, sky’.
