One Lane Bridge is a character focused crime drama with a dark, supernatural edge.
During a murder investigation at Queenstown’s infamous One Lane Bridge, ambitious young Cook Island M?ori detective Ariki Davis (Dominic Ona-Ariki, Shortland Street, Jonah) inadvertently reawakens a spiritual gift that endangers the case, his career and his life.
When a well-known local farmer is found dead at the bottom of the bridge, Ariki joins the investigation led by his boss, respected stalwart, Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen Tremaine (Joel Tobeck, Runaway Millionaires, The Luminaries).
But Ariki inadvertently unlocks his matakite - a supernatural ability akin to second sight that he hasn’t experienced since his youth. Kaleidoscopic images of the dead, ghostly voices and a mystical gecko haunt Ariki at every turn, compromising his ability to do his job.
As the pressure to solve the crime heats up, M?ori metaphysics collides with Southern Man scepticism.
And while the case twists and turns, one thing is for certain, this death wasn’t the first on the historic Queenstown landmark. And it won’t be the last…
Sara Wiseman (A Place to Call Home), Dean O’Gorman (The Bad Seed, The Hobbit) and Ryan O’Kane (Shortland Street, Home & Away) also star in this home-grown must-see thriller.
