2014, 3x 90 minutes

A television drama telefeature trilogy set in Christchurch, New Zealand, during the earthquakes and aftermath of 2010/2011. 

It’s the aftershocks that run the deepest, bringing to the surface the things that truly matter to us, the compassion of the many and the selfishness of the few. Covering a cross-section of modern families, from the homeless pulling together to create a community, to the middle-class suburbanites whose world has been shaken to its foundations, Hope & Wire shows us at our most desperate and our most hopeful. Echoing true events with a candid and unflinching eye, see what emerges from the rubble.

A universal story of family, hope and triumph against the odds.
