In this eight-part web comedy, Nikau (Conan Hayes) struggles with his first heartbreak, throwing everything at the wall to help feel better. With the support of his well-meaning but bumbling parents, and an eclectic group of friends, Nikau tries cross-fit, yoga, pottery and reiki — and has an ill-fated, drug-fuelled encounter with a sensory deprivation tank. The award-winning comedy features a large ensemble cast, while behind the camera a number of actors take on new roles. Grace Palmer (Good Grief) co-created and wrote the scripts with writer Kris Hermansson (Yap Trap), whilst actors Michelle Ang (My Wedding and Other Secrets) and Rawiri Jobe (Shortland Street) directed four episodes each.
Warning: Episode 4 contains some flashing lights that may affect photosensitive viewers
