Full Plot

Leeanne Rosser a strong but world-weary 20 year-old solo mother, sits on a hot train with her one-year-old, half-Samoan son Sam. It's her mother's birthday and Leeanne and Sam put up with the heat to visit her in Wainuiomata. But her mother is feeling the pull of the church, and refuses to accept Leeanne's baby born out of marriage. Leeanne's father is helpless to bring them together. Unknown to all of them, Leeanne's brother Brent is out creating mischief. He pretends to be a student or a bible salesman, and then robs houses when their owners are absent. Today an unsuspecting victim, Ulla, returns home during his robbery. Brent panics and sends Ulla plummeting down the steps with a sickening crack. For Leeanne and her family, and Ulla and her family, from that moment on, everything is changed. Ulla is paralyzed, her neck broken. Ulla has a 15 year-old daughter Olivia and an estranged husband Athol, who still lives at home and buries himself in his rental properties. Her husband's mother Gwen lives next door, having divorced Howard after a 40-year marriage. Gwen is the only person who can take responsibility for Ulla. For Leeanne, too, things reach a breaking point, after Danny brings home another girl to live in the flat. She returns to Wainuiomata to seek shelter with her parents, but her mother refuses them again. Brent sees a composite drawing of himself in a newspaper, as the man who is wanted for the crime. He realizes that his fingerprints will be found on Ulla's banister. He attempts to unload some of Ulla's stolen jewelery on Mrs. Ponder, an antique/junk dealer who acts as his 'fence'. But she is too smart, and soon knows Brent is wanted by the police. Brent is left with nowhere to turn but inward, into his own paranoia and fears. Mrs. Ponder puts pressure on Brent to leave the country. When Leeanne visits his flat to ask if she and Sam can come to live there, he loses his temper and sends them away in tears. One day as Leeanne is watching Sam on the swings at a waterfront park, a helicopter comes swooping out of the sky, almost knocking them to the ground with its downblast. Howard and his potential investors step out to survey the site, and Leeanne lets loose on them. It is a chance interaction that makes him realize he must re-evaluate his life. Two policemen are getting closer to Brent. But he has vanished. Leeanne, forced out of her home by a bullying boyfriend, ends up at Brent's flat with Sam, only to find it empty and trashed. It isn't long before the police swoop in and claim that Leeanne is implicated in her brother's crimes. Both families are now at breaking point. Brent's fate may lie in his own hands, but it will be Leeanne's strength and dedication to her child that will carry hope for the future. NZ Film Commission Leeanne Rosser's life is getting tougher and tougher each day. Her mother cannot accept her as a solo mother and is feeling the pull of the Church, whilst her father cannot seem to bring them all together. Worlds separate Leanne's brother Brent, a petty thief, from Ulla Peet, wife of Athco Properties' Athol Peet. But a burglary gone wrong brings them into a confrontation that will change their lives - and perhaps end them... Brent turns to murder, of the most brutal kind. Gordon Peet, brother of Athol and son of high-flying Howie, jumps on the money-go-round and is jailed for corporate fraud. Gwen and Ulla, who is now a quadriplegic, move towards a 'criminal' solution of their problem. Meanwhile, at the other end of the scale, beer-sodden Danny abuses Leeanne Rosser at will - until Leeanne decides to fight back. bondish Young single mother Leeanne showers her one-year-old with love and affection, though she gets no help from her family. Rebuffed by her mother, she tries to stay close to her cool and handsome brother Brent. But she doesn't know about his secret life as a professional thief preying on the unsuspecting rich. When he bungles a burglary, his world shatters. The crime creates a crisis for all the members of the two families. As relationships begin to fracture and fall apart, Leeanne must discover if she too has the courage and strength to survive. Scoop Media NZ Ltd Plot not found
