Does everyone have their price when it comes to murder? 

The homecoming of Sarah Reeves was meant to be the salvation for the town of Tutairua, but the townspeople soon learn that there is a fine line between Salvation and Damnation.

The Million is a dark comedy set in 1972, in the fictional Waikato village of Tutairua. Once an industrious and prosperous rural town, Tutairua is now heavily in debt and on the verge of disappearing off the map. The few remaining town's people have put all their resources and energies in to trying to dig Tutairua out of the hole it has found its self in.

Their last chance is the return of Sarah Reeves, the town's one and only success story. The whole town swears they will do anything to get the money they need from the millionairess, to bring their home back to life. But when push comes to shove can they actually do it?
