Summer, 1975. Rotorua, New Zealand.

Jimi Hendrix, motorbikes, ika mata and the dawn raids.

It's two days before twins Luka and Lucia finally cross into adulthood. Free, they roam the steam-filled streets of Rotorua on Luka's trusty Bonneville and dream of taking on the world. Luka desperate to escape, Lucia to become Miss Geyserland.

The twins work with their devout father at the local sawmill, uninspiring to them, for him where he has been since he first brought his family to this dry and broken land. A near death experience drags fatehr back to memories of Atiu, Cook Islands and the secrets and mistakes of his past, shaking the family's foundations and ultimate love of each other.

A coming of age. Sunset Road.
