A group of unemployed Northland youths are reluctant participants in a Business Enterprise Scheme which is intended to open up new business and employment options, but actually produces some unintended results.
Told with wit and insight, Hard Up (NZ) Ltd, paints a portrait of life on the benefit in a small New Zealand town.
Author, Susy Pointon is a New Zealand writer, teacher and film maker who lives in Northland.
Produced by Duncan Smith and engineered by Phil Brownlee for Radio New Zealand National
