– Graeme Tuckett ‘Stuff’ ★★★½ “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.”

A powerful New Zealand story inspired by the true story of Tārore, a Māori girl murdered in the mid 1800’s. ‘Broken’, tells the modern-day-version of Tārore’s story. Ex-gang leader, Logan is raising his daughter Tori. When she is murdered, Logan must choose forgiveness or revenge.
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.
