It’s the 1960s, on the rural East Coast of New Zealand. Two Māori sheep-shearing families, the Mahanas and the Poatas, are longstanding enemies and commercial rivals.

14-year-old Simeon Mahana, the youngest son of the youngest son, is in conflict with his traditionalist grandfather, Tamihana. As Simeon unravels the truth behind the longstanding family vendetta he risks not just his own future prospects but the cohesion of the entire tight-knit society.

From the author of Whale Rider, the screenwriter of Master and Commander and the producer and director of Once Were Warriors comes a profound and enduring tale of rural family life.

Mahana screened at the Melbourne and Sydney Film Festivals earlier this year, and was released in New Zealand cinemas in March.
