Essie Davis (The Babadook, SFF 2019) and Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit) shine in a powerful social drama about a single mother battling the system and her troubled past.
The lights of Bunny King’s life are young daughter Shannon and teenage son Reuben. The darkness in Bunny’s life is a tragic incident that forced her children into foster care. It left her virtually penniless and sleeping on her sister’s couch. While desperately attempting to secure accommodation that will reunite her with her kids, Bunny rescues teenage niece Tonyah from a gravely dangerous situation. Together, fiery-tempered Bunny and frightened Tonyah embark on a wild quest. Their mission? To have their voices heard – and for justice to be served. The spirit of social realist cinema is alive and well in this compassionate and propulsive feature debut by Kiwi director Gaysorn Thavat.
