"This Kāpiti-dramedy is, at its heart, a celebration of the region and its leading lady... Libby Hunsdale and Ari Boyland deliver terrific performances. Poppy is a nuanced, vibrant and comedic tour-de-force" - Stuff.co.nz.
A young woman with Down syndrome refuses to be defined by disability and takes control of her own life. Her ambition to become a motor mechanic – starting with the apprenticeship promised by her late father – is stalled by her super protective brother who has reluctantly inherited the family workshop/garage business. And it’s not until she teams up with an ex-school friend who needs his car fixed in time to enter the local burnout competition that her plans progress.
Filmed in Kāpiti, New Zealand. Directed by Linda Niccol, produced by Robin Laing and Alex Cole-Baker. Starring Libby Hunsdale, Ari Boyland, Seb Hunter and Kali Kopae.
