★★★★★ "Irresistibly charming" - Kate Rodger, Newshub

99-year-old Isey lives with her adult son James on their small farm in Kawakawa, New Zealand. They are descendants of Ngāti Manu – the Bird People. Isey is turning 100 in a week. In their unique relationship, James has devoted the last 20 years to looking after his mum. He is a tohunga (shaman) and brings the spirit world onboard to get her over 100. A joyous celebration of the sacred and everyday aroha (love).

★★★★½ - Stuff.co.nz
"A fantastically accomplished and affectionate celebration of the irascible, indelible Isey,"
"positively rolling in romanticism, nostalgia and pure, honestly given aroha"
"an unclassifiable triumph of heart and instinct over the odds."

"A beautiful portrait of a community and family" - Radio New Zealand

"Prepare to fall in love" - Steve Newall, Flicks.co.nz
