Maui's Hook

RP13 - Deals with suicide.

On the anniversary of his father’s suicide, Tama (Niwa Whatuira), a young man fuelled by drugs, alcohol and violence, spirals into anger and despair. As Tama travels the destructive road of no return, he becomes intertwined with five courageous families, each broken by the suicide of a loved one, each in search of healing and forgiveness. Hostage to his own pain, he finds himself travelling with the families – a road trip that forces him to witness first-hand the aftermath of suicide. And to face his own mortality. When he encounters Hine-nui-te-p?, a mysterious young woman (Hera Foley), Tama must accept the harsh reality that death is final. There’s no coming back. What does this mean, not just for Tama, but for all those left behind?
