Synopsis

This series is about the tribulations of New Zealand’s Maori dedicated to following in their ancestor’s footsteps by taking physical action to protect their land, mountains, and rivers, and ultimately their culture and identity before all is lost.

Kiri Danielle is on a personal mission to clean up dumped rubbish in her hometown of Rotorua and shame the perpetrators by dumping it back on their doorsteps. Phil is prepared to be jailed to clean up the country’s dirtiest lake. Cousins Teina and Wiremu put their lives on the line in rough seas to chain up a stolen national tourist attraction that is rightfully theirs. Rewi is on a crusade to not let native Maori cuisine slide into oblivion against a modern addiction to fast food.

These guardians will stop at nothing to make their world safer, cleaner, greener, and more equitable for the coming generations.
