Changing of The Guards
Synopsis: 

Roger is 69 years old. He has been a security guard for 29 years and never been robbed. Being a widower, Roger lives and breathes for his job, but he is being forced to retire. Ironically, his last day is on Christmas Eve. Will Roger survive the day with his pride intact and will he keep his unbroken record?

The film is set all in one day, from preparing for the days work in the morning to doing pick-ups throughout the day with his young partner, Tana. On their way back from the long haul to rural Whangarei the van breaks down and they are left stranded on a petrol station in the middle of nowhere. It doesn’t take long before some dodgy characters arrive.
