The price of milk explain this
In 1969, This film is set in rural New Zealand where a farmer, Rob (Karl Urban), gets engaged to his love, Lucinda (Danielle Cormack). However, Lucinda is worried about their relationship losing its spark and she continues pushing him away to try to keep the spark alive.
A string of quilt thefts have been occurring around town and when Lucinda finds hers, she is curious and reckless when she trades Rob's cows, worth NZ$400,000, for it. Rob is beyond words in his rage and loses his voice as he drives away, leaving Lucinda to worry for days before their planned wedding.
Drosophila, the name of Lucinda's meddling "friend", is the scientific name for fruit flies.
There is a close-up of the Maori woman called Auntie standing in the forest that the director mentioned in the DVD commentary was an accident. The cameras were rolling without the actress realizing it, and the director liked the footage so much he put it in the film.
