#var:page_name# cover

Set in 1984, on the east coast of New Zealand, Boy lives with his brother Rocky, his Nan, and a handful of cousins. Like any other 11 year old in 1984, he's obsessed with his hero, Michael Jackson, second to none - other than maybe the idea of Alamein, his father (Taika Waititi).

That is, until Alamein makes his return to dig up some cash he buried from an old score. Boy's perception of his father is drastically changed as he tries to keep up in this wild and unconventional coming of age story.
