Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hector (Sam Neill) and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Uncle Hector go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly-branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.

One of the most sincere and funny portraits of family life to come along in a while.”  (April Wolfe – L.A. Weekly)
