Boy is an 11-year-old Maori kid and avid Michael Jackson fan, waiting for his father to break out of prison and take him to the King of Pop’s big show. However, reality falls somewhat short of the fantasy. A sweet, funny, and fresh look at growing up—whatever your age. Courtesy of Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga New Zealand Film Commission.
