A gang member wakes up one morning and decides he needs a day off. Willy (played by ex-Mongrel Mob boss Tuhoe Isaac) checks out of the gang pad and, on a whim goes for a cruise on the Interislander. At a Picton Pub he makes an unlikely connection with brothers of a different clan. This near-wordless exploration of culture clashes and a man’s journey outside of his comfort zone, marked the first dramatic short by director Zoe McIntosh. It was selected for the New York and Tribeca film fests; Isaac won best performance in a short film at the 2010 Qantas Film and TV Awards.
I've been overseas eh.– Willy (Tuhoe Isaac) responds to being asked where he's been all day
