“Everyone is chasing a little wooden dog. Old and young, they all think it contains an elixir of life. But at the bowling club showdown nothing goes according to plan.

“If a carve[d] wooden dog with teeth like a shark followed you home, what would you do? Augusta thinks the statue might be just what she needs, but ex-boyfriend Billy doesn't want to know.

“Augusta and her trusty bull terrier Cyclops take him on a surreal odyssey through the suburbs. The trouble is, Augusta has neglected to mention the other people with a desperate interest in the statue.

“USER FRIENDLY is director Gregor Nicholas' first feature. His subsequent project, short film Avondale Dogs went on to win ten international awards, and his second feature Broken English met with success in both England and the United States.” - New Zealand Film Commission;; 27/01/2014.
