Blue Moon

Businessman Horace Jones (Mark Hadlow) is deep in debt. While his family thinks he is in Hong Kong on a business deal, he is covertly working a deadly quiet night shift at his own service station to make ends meet. When a suspicious looking character expires in the station’s toilet clutching a large wad of cash, Horace is suddenly offered a very tempting opportunity to dispose of the evidence and solve his own financial problems. When a gang enforcer (Jed Brophy) arrives at the station store, the screws begin to turn on Horace’s desperate scheme. This twisty real-time thriller from Stefen Harris (The Waimate Conspiracy (2006)) was nimbly staged and shot on an iPhone entirely within and around a Motueka petrol station in the wee small hours of the morning.
