Vale, Valea, Jeff da Maori, Sione and Mack live in the suburb of Morningside and attend the local college, St Sylvester's, where their principal is a Fa'afafine and the PE teacher is legendary ex-All Black Michael Jones.
Vale and Valea (loosely translates to dumb and dumber) are two brothers, living in a single-parent household with their father Pepelo, a benefit bludging, occasional fork-hoist driver with a love of beer, porn and gambling. Vale has a strong social conscience while Valea is more interested in pashing the girls, but both brothers believe in having a strong solidarity with their boys. Sione is Vale and Velea's best mate and fancies himself as a bit of a ladies man, while he constantly looks for ways to impress the girl of his dreams, sixth former Mila Jizovich.
Jeff da Maori lives with his mum and eight dads in a car shell outside the house. He was brought up in the country by his auntie but then moved to the city for better tv reception and because the thieving colonialists stole our land'. Rounding out the group is the softly spoken Mac who has definite gay tendencies and a knack for talking his way out of things but does stand behind his word eventually!
