Once Were Warriors

Based on Alan Duff’s best-selling novel, Once Were Warriors offers a scathing examination of the violence, emptiness, and desperation inherent in the existence of many modern urban Mauri families.  The film chronicles the trials of Beth Heke and her teenage daughter Grace who provide the glue that holds their disintegrating family together.
