Guy Pearce (Memento) stars in director Lee Tamahori’s (Once Were Warriors) historical epic.

New Zealand in the 1830s is a largely Māori world, dominated by tribal wars. Seeking redemption from a dark past, lay preacher Thomas Munro (Pearce) takes a dangerous journey into the prohibited lands ruled by Māori warlords after he witnesses a series of injustices in the British outpost that he has been brought to serve. However, Munro soon realizes he is a pawn in a strategic play of power, and with bloody war between the two dominant tribes now inevitable, he must decide what role he will play and whether his faith is real, or of any value.

Some Maori language, English subtitles.
