Synopsis: Fritz (played by Australian-Tongan actor Uli Latukefu), a displaced Tongan man, who escaped his past after the death of his father, returns to the cul-de-sac of his youth to sell his family home. When a priceless heirloom – a championship wrestling belt belonging to his late father, Baron Toa, – is pillaged from the family home, Fritz’s uncle Otto cancels the sale of the house until the belt is returned. A local street thug reveals the belt is now in the possession of resident gang, The Pig Hunters. Fritz determines to get the belt back with higher reasoning, but must also channel the life lessons of his late father to fulfill his new mission, to save the neighborhood. It’s THE KARATE KID meets cult fave TONGAN NINJA meets WWE, and this new Kiwi action/comedy boasts a stellar Pasifika/Maori cast, including Jay Laga’aia and Shavaughn Ruakere.
