Hone brought his family from the East Cape to the South Island to seek a better life, but leaving their whānau and ancestors has taken its toll.

As they prepare for a beachside birthday party in the late summer of 1965, what should be a celebration brings secrets and cultural clashes to the surface. Far away from their tipuna, can they find a place to stand together or be set adrift in an ocean of change.

A universally recognisable and triumphant piece of New Zealand theatre that explores family, culture, home and belonging.
