Everyone knows some brother with a classic Māori garage.
Everyone knows someone who can wax lyrical and dish out the mean advice.
No one said it would be meaningful or supportive, but sometimes, just sometimes it will challenge the ideas of masculinity, Māoridom and make you lay yourself out to be vulnerable in the most unlikely situations. Its all about the tinkering and those humble prophets of the Garage.

This development “solo” is the newest work by actor/director Scotty Cotter.
Based on the classic Māori garage, the conversations that happen in and around the shed and the whānau dynamics that go with it. Finding and re-defining the modern Māori man set in the “high-vis” working class.
