In 1876, settler Michael Sullivan is carving out an idyllic existence in Russell, the "Hell Hole" of the Pacific...

He has his best mate, Tane, at his side, a slice of land to call his own and the love of a good woman.

Too bad his best mate is trying to murder him, his land carries an evil Maori curse and the love of his 'good woman' is charged out by the hour.

And with the imminent arrival of his wife from England, Michael is about to discover that the dark secret she carries with her could very well turn God's Own paradise into Hell on earth...
