A manhunt drama in which a guerrilla survivor of the Boer War, lands in 1903 New Zealand and is promised a bounty to capture a Maori seafarer falsely accused of killing a soldier. What should be a simple job for a master tracker, turns into a gripping and dangerous game of cat and mouse over the New Zealand landscape. As each gains and loses the upper hand, they gradually get to know and respect each other. In the emotional and high-risk showdown, their tenuous bond is tested in the face of a military posse. Filmed near Karekare, Waitakere, Queenstown and Glenorchy. Even if you are one who does not care for "westerns", the location filming is worth the price and bird calls are an abundant extra. Given the altered format of the R2 DVD, the R1 DVD or the Blu-ray versions are the prefered offerings. Recommended.
