Two brothers, Alama (Vito Vito) and Popo (Longi Taulafo) arrive for the first time in New Zealand as seasonal workers, making plenty of money to take back home to their family in Samoa. But things take a turn for the worst when Popo steals Alamas' money. Determined not to return home empty handed, Alama puts out a call to for help but the only relative that answers is Bob Titilo (Tofiga Fepulea'i) a wannabe private investigator.
