Brothers Alama and Popo arrive for the first time in New Zealand as seasonal workers, making plenty of money to take back home to their family in Samoa. But things take a turn for the worse when Popo steals Alamas' money and runs away. Alama is determined not to return home empty handed, but the only relative who answers his call for help is Bob Titilo - an aspiring private investigator. Alama begins to doubt his decision when Bob's unconventional methods take them on a wild goose chase. This new action comedy is brought to you by the makers of hit comedies Three Wise CousinsHibiscus and Ruthless, and Mama's Music Box.
