In the early nineteenth century the Maori chief Te Rauparaha held fearful sway over a great part of New Zealand. During his life European influences eroded Maori traditions and much blood was spilt before British colonial law forced Te Rauparaha's abdication. His death represents the end of old New Zealand and this film conveys the magic and the violence that went to make up that past age.
