A powerful New Zealand story inspired by the true story of Tārore, a Māori girl who was murdered in the mid 1800’s.
"I reckon Hapi is just about the most watchable and convincing male actor working in Aotearoa/New Zealand today. There's a gravity and a power to his work that makes me think of what Bruno Lawrence would have brought to a similar role." - Graeme Tuckett, stuff.co.nz
Tārore always carries the Gospel of Luke with her until the book is stolen by her murderer from a marauding tribe. Upon reading the book, the murderer is so filled with remorse that he seeks forgiveness from Tārore’s father. This restores peace between two warring tribes and ends a cycle of war.
'Broken', tells the modern-day-version of of Tārore's story. Logan an ex-gang leader, has left the gang life to raise his daughter Tori. But when Tori is murdered by an opposing gang in town, Logan must choose between forgiveness or revenge. Cruz, Tori’s murderer, must also choose forgiveness in order to end the cycle of hatred and revenge which is escalating into an inevitable gang war.
