Aucklander Michael Caughey has it all: a successful US screenwriting career, a beautiful actress girlfriend Cherie, and a Central Otago vineyard. Now it’s finally time to do what he wants – make an art movie starring Cherie. But can Michael stay true to his dream or give in to temptations offered by a cut-throat Hollywood producer?

As Michael and Cherie struggle with the issue of money versus art, Brian, a local builder, completes the deck, and Karen, a young Invercargill housekeeper, keeps the household running.

Will Michael succumb to temptation? Will Cherie finally get a decent role? What are Brian’s mates building in Arrowtown? Surely Karen, a bright Southern Girl who can back a trailer and skin a possum, wants to do more in life than make beds?

Written by Dave Armstrong and directed by Conrad Newport, Central is a hugely entertaining comedy/drama that has Central Otago at its heart. Written while Dave was on a ‘Wild Creations’ residency at Bannockburn, Central combines a human story of love, greed and ambition with contemporary issues of conservation and landscape.
