New Zealand – 2016
Bella and Hector, reclusive country folk, become foster parents to Ricky, a problem child from the city. After some challenging adjustments, things went reasonably well.
But Bella dies, and Hector has to look after Ricky – but they hadn’t been getting along too well. Moreover, her death causes Child Services to decide to send Ricky back to the orphanage. Ricky refuses to go back and runs away, sparking off a national manhunt for him and Hector.
A big-hearted picture full of small, understated moments of magic.
