Charming
18 April 2018 | by dandhterrettSee all my reviews

For anyone who is from, lived, visited, NZ, then this show is a charming mix of people who are lost and find their way through others; relationships, communication and humour; family and friends are hard to navigate, especially teenagers, and the loss of a parent. Well done to all involved, this has been a great show to follow.
