Full film details

Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) is a typical city kid. Arrogant, defiant, and determined to do exactly what he wants.

That is until child welfare services intervene and send him to live with new foster parents – Aunt Bella and Uncle Hec (Rima Te Wiata and Sam Neill). Away from the city and out in the sticks, how will Ricky acclimatise to his new surroundings?

Before he has a chance to find out, child services cause disruption in Ricky’s life once again.

Faced with the prospect of going back to a care home, Ricky runs away into the bush, with Uncle Hec following, scared for the city kid’s safety in this harsh environment.

As welfare officials arrive to an empty house, they wrongly conclude that Hec has abducted Ricky. Now uncle and child must set aside their differences, not just to evade the pursuing social workers and police officers, but to simply survive in the bush.

Dennison lands his third notable movie role playing title character Ricky, having previously starred in Paper Planes and Shopping. The famous face of Sam Neill (Jurassic Park 3, Concussion) is cast as Uncle Hec, while Rachel House plays Paula, the social worker.
