Fishin' Chip

After burning down her step-family’s beloved fish ‘n’ chip shop, Chip races to her treasured houseboat – one of two things left by her mother. A stolen treasure and a birthday later, Chip is faced with the law, her sister, and most terrifyingly, her Aunty. Chip is then forced to care for something for the first time in her life. Can she cope with responsibility? The Māori in a white family, the Pākehā among Māori.
