Radio NZ, “Poppy is a local feel-good film about a young car mechanic determined not to let her disability slow her down. The film benefits enormously from the casting of Libby Hunsdale. Like Poppy, Libby’s a firecracker, with a remarkable range, beautifully guided by director and writer Linda Niccol.”

A young woman with Down syndrome refuses to be defined by disability and takes control of her own life. Her ambition to become a motor mechanic – starting with the apprenticeship promised by her late father – is stalled by her super protective brother who has reluctantly inherited the family workshop/garage business. And it’s not until she teams up with an ex-school friend who needs his car fixed in time to enter the local burnout competition that her plans progress.
