Who can you really trust when it seems like everyone around you is hiding something?

A “Axl Scott & Aaron Potter” FILM
WRITTEN BY Axl Scott & Aaron Potter

Axl has finished his first feature in Dunedin, and is off home to Auckland. But he is driving alone and needs some companions for the trip.

Driving through Oamaru, he finds his mate Aaron hitchhiking. But he is confused as his mate lives in Wellington, and to his knowledge has no idea why he’s so far down South without a word from him.

He picks up a random hitcher from the side of the road (while going through Christchurch), who gets in the car.

The stranger chucks his bag into the boot, but Axl swears he saw an arm hanging out of it. The stranger quickly puts the arm back in the bag to try and hide anything...

Upon the ferry, people are giving this random stranger very weird looks… Axl has no idea what is going on…
