A family descended from Maori warriors is bedeviled by a violent father and the societal problems of being treated as outcasts.
Temuera Morrison fought hard to keep the role once it was offered to him, even though he struggled to master it. He knew that the role was a huge challenge and that it would be the making of him as an actor.

During the opening scenes, Beth Heke is walking past the yard where some men are working out with weights. One man is "spotting" the other man who is doing bench-presses. As the camera changes angles, the man who is spotting changes from spotting with his palms facing down to actually doing "curls" with the bar that the other man is pressing up and down. Each time there is a change in the camera angle, his grip on the bar goes back and forth from palms-up/curling to palms-down/shoulder shrugs. This happens several times.
Most of the opening credits are either split in half, scattered in different areas of the screen, abnormally shaped or used in small white print. Some are even mixed.
