“Kahawai” is set in an unfamiliar time and place (a much-changed Auckland in a not-so-distant future), but it conveys familiar ideas about sustainability, selflessness for the greater good, and cooperation in times of hardship. Āreta, and her grandmother, Trish, go fishing on a filthy sea and make a surprising catch.
