Allgood explores healthier relationships within the mental well-being of young people and families, while de-stigmatising the effects of domestic abuse
Old college best friends, Parekura, a strong young wahine toa and a dream chasing Ra re-unite on a night out in the town. Their past rekindles an old kind, odd romance for each other again while they enjoy the night and end up back at Parekura’s whare where her father, Chief awaits the return of his only daughter not expecting to see Pare’s infamous friend arriving with her.
Ra receives a confronting welcome talk by the parents forcing himself and Parekura to sleep in different beds.
Chief concedes to Parekura’s demands of letting Ra stay. After catch ups are had Chief and Ra come to form a mutual kind of concern for Parekura and how she seems a little different.
Parekura’s state of mind begins to deteriorate during the next day from various pressures and stress as she tries to get back to a sense of good, a familiar turbulence begins to arise between Ra and herself leaving Ra to figure out how he really wants to be there with his beloved best friend.
