'This Town' follows one man's attempt to return to normality and one woman's utter determination to prevent it. Acquitted of a crime, Sean (David White) tries to rebuild his life while ex-cop Pam (Robyn Malcolm), turned Petting Zoo Owner, conviced of his murderous tendencies, tries to prove his guilt. Sean meets Casey (Alice May Connolly) whose faith in his innocence lends new force to his struggle for an ordinary life. Charting the sublimely awkward aftermath of small town tragedy, 'This Town' is a touchingly twisted comedy about what it means to reinvent yourself. Filmed around the Hawkes Bay communities of Takapau and Waipukurau.
