Set in New Zealand in the 1970s, Possum is a tale of two young brothers who accompany their lumberjack father to a forest campsite. At odds with each other, the two hatch a plan to head into the woods and hunt for a notorious possum named Scar. Possum is a short film based on a true story between director Dave Whitehead and his older brother Nathan, based on when they grew up in rural Wairoa. Filmed in Otaki.
