Hitch Hike by Matthew J. Saville

On a trip to find his birth mother, a teenage boy is forced to hitch a ride with a heavily-tattooed stranger.

A young man is hitchhiking across New Zealand, making his way through the striking stretches of landscape. But he’s not just enjoying the scenery — he’s on a search for his birth mother, and by extension, his identity.

Along the way, he encounters an intimidating man with unsavory tattoos inked all over his body — and discovers just what “family” really means.

Director Matthew Saville’s gem of a drama may feature a situation not everyone can relate to, but the skilled script and finely tuned directing helps viewers to understand the desire for connection and understanding — and thirst for love — that drives the main character.

“Hitch Hike” culminates in an emotionally devastating moment that will break your heart and shatter expectations — but then allows us to uncover just what compassion and consolation looks like.
