Raised largely in foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand
countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the
cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to
another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush and a national manhunt ensues. With
sharp, nimble humor, Wilderpeople is a sweet story told with biting wit and an editing style that
keeps things going at a rapid pace.
