Description: Tania thinks she's Maori. She works the graveyard shift at a petrol station saving money so she can take her brother Piwakawaka to Surfers Paradise to find their dad. When Pi goes away to pick kiwifruit, Tania is left by herself to plan for their trip. Stuck in
a petrol station –getting security training and making sure her boss, Rog, doesn't lose his job - Tania can't rescue her brother from his new mates and from thinking he can fly. Dean, the regional manager, arrives to keep an eye on Rog but Dean has his eye on Tania, too. When Dean questions Tania's culture and who her family is, she starts to piece together the truth. She realises she must save her brother and bring him home. Then one night a cheeky little bird ruins everything and Tania pays the ultimate price for being a hero.
Set almost entirely in a petrol station, Fantail was shot on location in South Auckland, New Zealand. Fantail is the passion project of director Curtis Vowell, producer Sarah Cook and writer/actress Sophie Henderson and was funded under the New Zealand Film Commission ESCALATOR scheme
