5/5 Stars "Films like Cousins only come around once in a blue moon" - Kate Rodger (Newshub/ TV3)
FROM THE PRODUCERS OF BOY AND THE BREAKER UPPERERS!
Based on the book, regarded as a great Kiwi classic, by Patricia Grace.
Mata, Missy and Makareta. Three cousins. Three lives. Separate, yet bound together forever. Orphaned Mata believes she has no whānau and lives out her lonely childhood in fear and bewilderment. Back home on the land, educated Makareta flees an arranged marriage to study law and begin the search for her missing cousin. She leaves behind cheeky yet dutiful Missy who takes on her role of kaitiaki (guardian) of the land. As the years pass and land surveyors begin to encroach, their promise to bring their stolen cousin home seems more unlikely than ever, until a chance encounter changes everything.
