The Catch

1h 25m Comedy, Drama 2017

Based on a true story, this good-hearted eco-comedy celebrates fishing culture as fraud unfolds during an angling contest amidst the beauty of the Kaipara region.

Brian’s life is in turmoil, recently divorced and in extreme financial difficulty, so can’t believe his luck when a large snapper falls into his hands days before the contest. Wiremu is dead set against the idea, but things get complicated when Marcus enters the picture and attempts to blackmail Brian.

“A heart-warming film about friendship, trust, morals and the triumph of good over evil - all set against the backdrop of over-fishing and ecological frailty and all told with wry humour” ~
