Tumatauenga - The Maori God of War - who will be the last one standing?

Didn't your parents ever tell you, that you should never, ever enter the forest after dark!

A “2 Many Brown FACES” FILM
WRITTEN BY Phyllis Callaghan

Tumatauenga - The Maori God of War

Maori legend has it, that 2030 is the year of Tumatauenga's (the Maori God of war) bloody return. Tumatauenga has lain dormant for over 400 years and something is stirring within the ancient depths of the old forest. Overhanging with gigantic trees, creeping vines and moss, void of light, the scene is set for Tumatauenga's awakening. This is 2030 - the year that Maori were going to revive their culture, but for four unsuspecting brown brothers, on an excursion of a life-time, fate is about to take a horrible twist.

This was not the renaissance that Maori had longed for, and as the four brown brothers are about to find out, the forest is not a safe place to be after dark. But is something more sinister at play, than the legend of Tumatauenga. In this twisted nightmare, nothing is what it seems. Only one can remain. Who will be the last one standing?
