Inspired by true events, Bosch & Rockit is stirring, provocative and peppered with laconic Australian humour, a compelling story capturing the light and shade of life, reflecting our strength and our vulnerability.
The power of the script lies in its perspective. Set in the late 1980s, before the era of mobile phones and social media, Bosch & Rockit is told through the eyes of a 13-year-old boy, our protagonist Rockit.
As he grapples to understand why his Mum’s not coming home, Rockit embarks on a magical holiday with his father, Bosch, only to discover they’re actually running from the law.
Rockit finds a soulmate and then teenage love with Ash Ash, but it’s the ocean that gives him the security and calm he yearns from his parents. Ultimately Rockit is a boy held by nature, a young man who wins our hearts and respect as his story unfolds.
Filmed at iconic Byron Bay, against the canvas of Australia’s famous east coast surf beaches and rain forests, Bosch & Rockit is a raw and unapologetic exploration of unconscious parenting and the deeper themes of love and relationships.
