Synopsis: Set in Dunedin in 1981, a rugby-obsessed country is divided over the arrival of the South African Springboks team, sparking nationwide protests. Under pressure from home and school to conform, Josh, who has never felt like he fits in anywhere, is inspired by the protests and by a newfound passion for performing to find his own voice. A sequence of events sees Josh embrace his community and his whakapapa Maori, taking him and his whanau on a journey towards healing.

“Funny, poignant and emotional, this thoroughly entertaining ‘80s-set dramedy deserves to be seen by Kiwis of all ages.”~James Croot, Stuff
