The hard-hitting New Zealand classic about a violent and troubled family in South Auckland, based on Alan Duff's novel. Directed by Lee Tamahori and featuring a towering performance from Temuera Morrison as Jake the Muss.
Jake and Beth (Rena Owen) Heke have been married for 18 years and have five kids. While the love is there, Jake is a terrifying man who frequently fights at the pub and in the home. The film follows several weeks in the Otara family's life, showing Jake's alcoholism and its destructive effect, as well as the indomitable spirit of Beth.

Once Were Warriors became the highest ever grossing NZ movie at the domestic box office, until it was overtaken by Roger Donaldson's The World's Fastest Indian in 2005
