The Sweetshop

12-year-old Howie and his mother Bev are in trouble. Howie’s abusive older brother, Fletcher, has a gun. With nowhere to turn, Howie steals the gun and runs to oddball friend Matt’s house. Together, they heist the family’s old Datsun and drive to an ancient stone wall that they believe has the power to change the lives of all who visit. As Howie and Matt close-in on The Wall, their mothers, the police and self-doubt push them to the edge.

Developed with the support of the New Zealand Film Commission.

Estimated to shoot March 2025.
