A hip metaphysical exploration of life, love, friendship, punk rock,
blowing things up... and the art of meditation.
It's Auckland, New Zealand. October, 1994. And a group of anarchist
punks have hatched a plan to sabotage the opening of a multinational-
fastfood restaurant, (Bobo's), by blowing the building sky-high come opening time.
Chopstick has been given the unenviable task of setting the bomb in
the restaurant the night before the opening, but when he is separated from his accomplice,
Tracy, the night takes an unexpected turn.
As they search the city
streets for each other in the
hope of making their rendezvous on time, a series of fateful meetings
and events from their past conspire against them, forcing the friends to
deal with more than just the mission at hand.
As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that there is
more at stake here than was first realised, and that the outcome of the
night's events will change all of their lives in ways they never could have imagined...
