Ross (Marshall Napier) is a third-generation dairy farmer in northern New Zealand, his taciturn, inward nature more evident when tragedy strikes his family. Recognising he is getting too old for farming, he expects his son Bruce (Cohen Holloway) to take on the land, though squeamish Bruce is more inclined to keep his job at the local dump, where he has found a knack of restoring abandoned treasures. Evocatively filmed in its rural locations, Hamish Bennett’s winning drama has wry observations on grief, community and masculinity and an appealing, warm sense of humour. MH
