Three Maori youths, bored with Auckland, head south in a restored
Mark II Zephyr in search of something different. One of them is on
the run from drug dealers, whom he had crossed. Various
mini-adventures occurs as they make their way down the North
Island, but it all comes to a head while visiting a cousin.
Finally, they, the drug dealers and the police all come together,
with the expected fights and arrests. Obviously targeted at a
youth audience, this made for TV production is a bit aimless in
its attempt to be a Polynesian GOODBYE PORK PIE.
