Mama's Music Box

Pacific Island Christmas comedy from the makers of Take Home Pay following two grandchildren (Unaloto Funaki & Sieni Leo’o Olo) on a search for their grandmother’s (Yvonne Maea-Brown) music box. But what starts off as a simple deed turns into an unexpected race full of obstacles and hidden family secrets.

The film was made as part of a "self-inflicted" 30-day challenge to complete a feature from scratch within a month. Producer Abba Rose Vaiaoga-Ioasa admits: "It's tough but our crew have been amazing and have risen to the challenge."
