As a Maori boy in the 1980s, there are certain expectations of what hell grow up to be, and he seems to fail at all of them. Shuttled from one relative to the next, Amiri feels like the whole world has given up on him when hes exiled from the family farm down to an elderly aunt living in Auckland. Hes surprised when Auntie Moana takes an active interest in his life--and who hes dating--pushing him to be a person no one has ever believed he could become. From Tane, his childhood best friend, and on through a series of mismatched boyfriends and potential lovers, Amiri can never seem to find the right one. He cant figure out exactly what the world seems to want from him, or who he wants to be. As he slowly learns about himself and works toward becoming a doctor, Amiri struggles to come to terms with himself as both Maori and gay, hoping he can reconcile the two and find a partner who will love all parts of him equally.
