Set in New Zealand, this is a lovely little rom com. Doug is unexpectedly dumped by his girlfriend Susan. He then finds an injured duck who has also lost its mate. He reluctantly takes care of the duck which leads him to meet Holly, the local bird expect at the zoo. After an awkward start they begin a relationship. The duck also becomes a very important part of his life. When Susan wants him back, he has to chose between them. It doesn’t sound like there’s much to it, and there isn’t. It’s a simple story line but it’s actually very well made and quite charming.
