Zero Inn

It’s the night before Christmas when three drop-outs drop in to Zero Inn, on the shore of a remote lake: the dream holiday home of an advertising man whose discontented wife and mother-in-law are also in residence. The inevitable clash of generations, values and cultures has unexpected results.

With an entertaining mix of humour, tension and tenderness, Zero Inn explores timeless themes: consumerism, the environment, Māori culture, colonisation, traditional gender roles, warfare and the arms race, unfettered progress – and marijuana.
