This is a documentary of Steve Winiata, a Maori security guard living in Wellington while maintaining close links to his family heritage and land his parents and ancestors are from.

Steve narrates and is followed around the city where he lives, works and trades. His life is simple. He uses barter as a form of personalizing his journey through life. This system adds value to his traders and his heritage. Steve trades goods that are unique such as trout, venison and wild pork from their local lake and bush.
