Trouble is My Business

The inspirational story of Peachy (that's Mr Peach, to you), an unconventional but determined-as-hell teacher in a tough South Auckland school. When the most troubled of the students get so out of hand that their regular teachers can't deal with them, they get sent to Assistant Principal Peachy, and it's sometimes only his refusal to give up on these young people (some of them gang members) that puts them on the right track. This heartfelt documentary was rated one of the top 20 films of the year by flicks.co.nz.
