Project Description

During a murder investigation at Queenstown’s infamous One Lane Bridge, ambitious young Māori Detective Ariki Davis inadvertently reawakens a spiritual gift that endangers the case, his career and his life.

One Lane Bridge is a character focused crime drama with a dark, supernatural edge.

Ambitious young Māori detective, Ariki Davis arrives in Queenstown with high hopes for his future. When local legend Grub Ryder is found dead at the bottom of the infamous One Lane Bridge, Ariki joins the investigation led by his boss, respected stalwart, Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen Tremaine.

While at One Lane Bridge, Ariki inadvertently unlocks his Matakite – a supernatural ability akin to second sight that he hasn’t experienced since his youth.

As One Lane Bridge twists and turns and the pressure to solve the crime heats up, Māori metaphysics collides with Southern Man scepticism.

And at the centre of it all sits the mysterious One Lane Bridge, a historic Queenstown landmark synonymous with murder, suicide and fatal accidents. Grub’s death wasn’t the first. And it won’t be the last…
