About Road Trip:
The fictional drama element will follow two characters – Sarah, an uptight Canadian, and Beni, an overly-relaxed Tongan – who are forced to travel the length of the country together.
The documentary element will see the two characters visit local towns and tell the stories of New Zealanders which may have been heard by local communities, but not by the rest of the country.
