Directed and written by Tom Furniss, Rustling tells the story of a 15-year-old boy who must go up against his domineering father in order to help his younger brother keep the baby lamb left orphaned by the sheep-rustling family's latest slaughter.

Finalists will compete for a total prize pool of $15,500, with a jury awarding three prizes at the premiere screening of New Zealand’s Best in Auckland on Saturday, 6 July, and the Audience Award, as voted by the public, awarded on the closing night of the festival in Wellington, Sunday 14 August.
