Inspired by the real life romance of writer-director Nikki Si'ulepa and producer Rachel Aneta Wills, Same But Different: A True New Zealand Love Story is a delightfully modern, cross-cultural romantic comedy about being your true self.
 
In Auckland, bumbling single mum Rachel (Robyn Paterson) is trying to avoid romantic entanglements. Then she meets stunning Kiwi-Samoan filmmaker Nikki (Hannah Martin) at a Māori film festival and it’s love at first sight – at least for Rachel.
 
After stalking her target on social media like a teenager, trying to appear cooler than she really is, and generally making a fool of herself, Rachel finally succeeds at “asking a chick out on a date”. True love beckons for this attractive Kiwi odd couple until a spiteful ex throws a spanner in the works, making Nikki question how serious Rachel really is about their relationship.
