Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He finds home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, cantankerous Uncle Hec and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Parts road-movie, comedy and rousing adventure story, the charmingly offbeat Hunt for the Wilderpeople contains a funny, but deeply affecting message.
