Inspired by actual events, Muru is the story of a local Police Sergeant 'Taffy' Tawharau (Cliff Curtis), who recently returned home to the remote Ruatoki valley to look after his sick father. However, he finds he must choose between duty to his badge or his people when the Government invokes antiterrorism powers to launch an armed raid on his community. This action drama is not a re-creation, but a response to the 2007 Tuhoe raids. Muru is a Maori concept for forgiveness.
