Introducing Piripi Kaiwaru Takurua, born and bred on the East Coast of Aotearoa.
He’s spent all his life in Uawa (Tolaga Bay) and Tokomaru Bay. He loves to hunt, dive, and cook, and his favourite TV show is Lucifer.
A humourous and quirky coming-of-age story, we follow Piripi as he figures out how to hold down a job and look after the whānau home in Tolaga Bay while his mum's working in Wellington.
But he's not really alone. Mum calls every five minutes on FaceTime to make sure he's doing everything properly... which he isn't!
