The Aro Street video shop in Wellington is one of New Zealand's largest independent film rental businesses and has a special place in the hearts of movie lovers. But as the number of video stores around the country plummets, AroVideo is teetering on the edge.

Owner Andrew Armitage tells Kim Hill that things are "topsy-turvy, all over the place" as the store faces its uncertain future.
