Cucumber Life for 46-year-old Henry (Vincent Franklin) and his boyfriend Lance is comfortable and settled. But after the most disastrous date night in history--involving a threesome, two police cars, and Boney M--Henry's old life shatters, and his new life begins. While Lance gets to know the mysterious Daniel, Henry soon finds himself with unexpected companions. 24-year-old Freddie and 19-year-old Dean have only been passing strangers, until now. But when they all find themselves under the same roof, they need to work out; are they friends or enemies? Can men from such different generations ever get on?
Henry's sister Cleo can only stand and watch as Henry's life spins off in wild new directions, helped by his nephew Adam. But Cleo's hiding secrets of her own. And with his dangerous old friend Cliff prowling around, Henry has to think fast, and forge a whole new life, while facing truths about himself which challenge his entire identity.

Banana Banana offers an intriguing and often outrageous peek into the individual lives, loves and losses of a range of characters who are only glimpsed in Cucumber, now given space to expand into their own one-off stories. Young lesbian Scotty pursues an unrequited love; 19-year-old Dean has mysterious family secrets and a sexually charged liaison with the enigmatic Geordie Man; Sian struggles to choose between lover Violet and her over-protective mum Vanessa; Helen is besieged by unwanted attention from an ex; and law student Josh goes home to find his childhood friend and the life he left behind. The stories are charming, witty and at times, heartbreaking, as they follow the lives of a wide variety of characters, be they gay, lesbian, transgender or anything in between.

If your order shows as dispatched and hasn't arrived within the expected time frame, please first check with your local delivery office before contacting uswith the details.
How much is delivery?
Delivery across New Zealand and Australia is free on all orders.
Products are usually despatched separately even if you have ordered them together. If you would like to have items sent to separate addresses please complete a separate order for each address.
How are orders despatched?
We ship all items from our warehouses and reliable suppliers in three countries from which we source and ship out orders; they are located in New Zealand, Australia & UK.
We ship out orders from suppliers located closest to your location (depending on where the item is in stock) to ensure quick and safe delivery. We use suppliers from NZ, Australia & UK depending on availability of the item to ensure you receive your item as quickly as possible.
HOW WILL IT BE DELIVERED? This will be dependent on the size and value of the parcel. Deliveries are shipped by Airmail to worldwide destinations from our fulfilment centres in New Zealand, Australia, US & UK depending on which centre holds the stock and which is closer for quicker delivery to you. Sometimes we will use our suppliers and distributor labels to ship the item direct to you in order to reduce delivery times.
WHY DO SOME ITEMS INCUR BACKORDER AND DELAYS IN DELIVERY? Whilst we always aim to keep items in stock so we can ship your order immediately, unfortunately this is not always possible for a number of reasons: 1. Our aim is to offer you a wide range of dvd & blu ray titles and some of these are fast sellers which can quickly run out of stock and therefore we need to source these to order. 2. Sometimes we are reliant on labels and distributors and we have no control over delays incurred by our third party suppliers.
All non-delivered items will be replaced or refunded in full as our deliveries are insured against loss/damage.
