Set on the east coast of New Zealand in 1984, Boy, an 11-year-old child and devout Michael Jackson fan, gets a chance to know his absentee criminal father, who has returned to find a bag of money he buried years ago.
Boy was born in 1973.
You're a liar, your dad's not overseas, he's in jail for robbery
Boy: Shut up Kingi, you don't know
Kingi: Yes, he's in the same cell block as my dad
When Boy is talking to his friend Dynasty in the car in one scene when their parents are at the pub, Dynasty says her Mum is playing the "pokies." Poker machines were not introduced into New Zealand until 1991, 7 years after the movie is set.
At the end of the "special thanks to" segment it says, "and Michael Jackson. Shamon in peace."
