Charles isn’t just arriving into New Zealand – he’s arriving into another life. But the reality of Christchurch ain’t the fantasy he was promised.

The fish factory he works at stinks, his nieces have no understanding of their Samoan culture or language and there’s some Palagi hanging around his sister…

Alternately hilarious and sobering, this milestone Pasifika play tells a culturally challenging yet universally Kiwi story about family, culture shock and what we owe each other.
