1981: muscle cars, racial tensions and a thieving bird all form the small town life of brothers Willie and Solomon. After a chance encounter with charismatic thief Bennie, and his close-knit gang of ‘shoppers’, Willie is seduced into a criminal world that allows him to escape mounting tensions with his volatile father. But as Bennie’s hold over him grows, Willie finds himself in over his head. When Solomon is left to fend for himself at home, Willie’s two worlds collide with shattering consequences. Shot at various Kapiti Coast locations.
