Acquitted of a crime, Sean is a young man trying to rebuild his life. Pam, an ex-cop turned Petting Zoo and Adventure Park™ owner is convinced of his murderous tendencies and will do anything to prove his guilt. Five years on from the crime, Sean starts where any millennial would – with online dating. He meets Casey, a quirky young woman who believes in his innocence. Together they push the limits of love after murder, but with every step forward Pam is trying to pull them back, well, after feeding the Alpacas. 

Written and directed by David White (Meat). Starring Robyn Malcolm (Outrageous Fortune), David White, Alice May Connolly (Daffodils) and Rima Te Wiata (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, The Breaker Upperers). 

★★★★ - Stuff
"For a comedy with a mass murder at its centre, This Town is a surprisingly gentle and kind-hearted tale."
"This Town is a clever, likeable, well-written and played, and occasionally inspired film. In a year in which buying local matters more than ever, I reckon you'll be happy you bought into it."

★★★★★ - Otago Daily Times
"Brilliant!!! I loved this film so much, it's an instant kiwi classic!"

"Worth a visit to the cinema... Full of genuinely funny quirky moments and some hilarious performances." - Judy Bailey

"A gentle romcom with a heart of surprisingly confronting darkness. Dark comedy This Town is unquestionably funny, filled with visual gags and sly mockery of its own audience." - The Spinoff

"I want to watch this 10 times over, highly recommended", "A classic kiwi movie... up there with Boy and Hunt For The Wilderpeople" - Radio NZ
