Tania thinks she's Māori.
She works the graveyard shift at Horizon to save money to take her brother Pi to Surfers to find their dad. But one night a cheeky little bird ruins everything and Tania pays the ultimate price for being a hero.
Set almost entirely in a petrol station, Fantail was shot on location in South Auckland, New Zealand.
Fantail is the passion project of director Curtis Vowell, producer Sarah Cook and writer/actress Sophie Henderson. It was funded through the New Zealand Film Commission Escalator scheme.
Fantail premiered at the New Zealand International Film Festival in July 2013.
