Miles (Joel Tobeck) is 16. His family are falling apart and he's got a crush on his cousin. An imminent Royal visit offends his mother's political sensibilities and his father is spending too much time with a female neighbour. Christmas is coming and the twins have murder on their minds. Director Niki (Whale Rider) Caro's survey of the everyday eccentricities of family scored nods for best TV drama scipt and director at the 1994 NZ Film and TV Awards. The film was one of three half-hour dramas commissioned by TVNZ under the series title Another Country.

My father made a living as a female impersonator and my mother was an anti-royalist ... we didn't usually use the word queen in our house.
– Miles (Joel Tobeck)
