A new movie featuring Kiwi born Samoan actor Tofiga Fepulea'i and many other well known Kiwi and Pacific Island actors is set to be released on September 5.

Take Home Pay is the third self-funded feature film for director and writer SQS (Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa) and focuses on Samoan brothers Popo, played by former What Now presenter Ronnie Taulafo, and Alama, played by Vito Vito, who ditch the taro fields for the promise of big money picking kiwifruit in Aotearoa. 

One brother ends up calling upon private investigator Bob Titilo, played by former Laughing Samoan Tofiga Fepulea'i to track his brother down after he steals the wages.

The film was shot in Samoa, as well as Auckland and also features boxer David Tua.
