Inspired by stories from New Zealand’s boys homes and the early history of our gangs, 'Savage' follows Danny across three decades of his life: from the abusive state-run boys’ institutions 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.

Together the three chapters of Danny’s life combine to create a deeper look at a boy who grows up to become the brutal enforcer of a gang; and understand how he got there.

In New Zealand Cinemas August 27th.
