Produced by Kingfisher Films and Keeper Pictures in association with Southern Light Films, THE GONE, an official Irish/New Zealand co-production, follows Dublin-based Theo Richter, an Irish Special Branch detective, as he heads to New Zealand to help search for two young Irish tourists who have vanished without a trace. He teams up with Kiwi cop Diana Huia, a young Māori detective to find the missing couple. They’ve gone missing from Mount Affinity, a picturesque rural town with a dark history of disappearances and death that has recently become home to supposedly altruistic tech conglomerate Houkura, creating divisions within the local community.
