A “Firstlight Films” FILM
WRITTEN BY Hemi Ratahi

In the near future, New Zealand is now a republic and has opened it's borders to Free Trade and Globalisation giving giant money making Corporations and World Banks interests into the country. Local fishing, agriculture and cultivation have ceased and New Zealand has become dependant on off shore markets. The cost of living has increased due to these large corporations driving up prices and dictating laws. The gap between the rich and poor has been stretched to breaking point the countries welfare system has failed.

The Treaty of Waitangi has been reduced to mean no more than a mere handshake. All past transgressions and wrongful taking of land have been wiped clean in order for the country 'to move on and start a new'. For years Māori have been protesting for their rights which has all been in vain, so for a group of protesters who have come to realise that banners and marches no longer work and its now time to rise up! We follow these group of radicals as they plot to regain their country and return it back to the people by any means necessary, even if its by the patu or gun.
