Inspired by stories from New Zealand's boys homes and the early history of New Zealand gangs, Savage follows Danny across three different ages at important junctures that push and pull him towards and away from gang life. Each chapter of Danny's life is a complete short story set in a defining time for New Zealand gangs: from the abusive state-run boy's homes of the sixties; to the emerging urban gang scene in the seventies where disenfranchised teenagers created their own families on the streets; to the eighties when gangs became more structured, criminal and violent. Premiered 08 October 2019.

Censor Rating: R16 - Review rating: B
