Synopsis

How easy is to grew up from a good boy to vicious gangster in Wellington? 9-year-old Danny is going through dangerous process of criminal education step by step as we witness a raw portrayal of street gangs culture in New Zealand. He will be challenged to survive upbringing of abusive father, painful betrayals and exams of loyalty on a journey to the supreme leadership without a single drop of mercy.

Fearless debutant Sam Kelly follows radical changes in three most significant chapters of Danny’s life: early boyhood in 1965, problematic juvenile adolescence in 1972 and menacing tattooed masculinity in 1989. Just before crucial and violent attack of the Savages bikers club Danny can’t allow to show any weakness. Otherwise he will be gravely punished.

Inspired by real and brutal Kiwi street gang history.
