Starring, written, and produced by members of New Zealand's queer, Māori, and gender-diverse communities, this touching dramedy is about the power of embracing one's identity in all its forms.
A decade since he skipped town without warning, gay transgender activist Caz returns to his isolated hometown of Rūrangi, where no one has seen or heard from him since he transitioned. Although former best friend Anahera is quick to embrace him, the same can't be said of his estranged father, while his reappearance raises more questions than answers for ex-boyfriend Jem. 
As Caz struggles to reconnect and make amends, the realisation they're grappling with their own shifting identities and shared history pushes him to finally confront the regrets he's been running from.
Winner of the Audience Award at the world’s largest LGBTIQ+ Film Festival, Framleine, Rūrangi is a crowd pleaser that perfectly balances drama, humour and heart.
