Ever been to Arohanui? It’s that town somewhere in Southland; you know, the one with the great tea rooms owned by those twin sisters. Population 250. Chances are you have driven through it en route to Dunedin without even realising.
A bustling hub until the late 80s – thanks to New Zealand’s first and only facsimile factory – Arohanui has struggled to reclaim its glory since the demand for fax machines died out. Inexplicably.
But when your home changes from rural-hotspot to eerie no-mans-land how do you choose to remember it? Especially if you can’t leave.
