Chosen by New Zealand as its 2014 submission for Best Foreign Language Oscar, this moving drama follows Paraiti, a Maori medicine woman, as she leaves her rural home for Auckland. There, she runs into a Maori servant whose employer is a wealthy woman in a high position in European settler society. A request is made: Will Paraiti help the employer solve what could be a scandalous, life-threatening situation? This is a tale of clashing cultures, racial identity and redemption. Viewer Advisory: Mature themes.
