synopsis

This feature follows director Vea Mafile'o's father, Tongan migrant pensioner Saia Mafile'o. Driven by his deep faith in God and Tongan culture, pensioner Saia Mafile'o carefully navigates not only the rough streets of South Auckland but also his sometimes-fraught relationship with his New Zealand-born son Robert, who struggles to accept his father's commitment to a Kingdom that tore their family apart.
