One Summer’s morning 14-year-old Ned Poindexter and his friend Les discover that their chickens have been stolen. At the same time, 250 miles away in the city, a teenage girl is found floating in a pond – her throat cut. The two stories come together in this adaptation of the R H Morrieson novel of the same name.

The two crimes, one so trivial and the other so diabolical, belong to the same story. In fact they’re the opening frames of the film. A film in which an adolescent grapples with manhood, morality and the consequences of chicken stealing (both inflicted and perpetrated) while a murderer and sex maniac stalks his beautiful and beloved sister, Prudence.

The Scarecrow was the first New Zealand feature film to win official selection at Cannes.
