Carol – Acushla-Tara Kupe
Paul – James Cain
Annie – Kate Johnstone
Will – Dryw McArthur

A Dunedin based drummer suddenly uproots his job and city; a recently dumped self-help expert is self-destructing; a primary school teacher wants to write violent children’s fiction; and a thirty-one year old, skateboarding, Emma Thompson obsessed man-child is sleeping on the couch. A comedy-drama set in small-town New Zealand.
