Once Were Warriors is a powerfully raw and deeply affecting film about one woman's desperate struggle to keep her family together. Beth Heke is a mother who will do anything to protect her children. Jake is her husband, a brute of a man whose hard drinking ways and volatile personality threaten to tear the family apart. Together, this mismatched couple is trapped in a world of violence and brutality, until a horrible tragedy forces Beth to look into her past and find the strength to fight for her family's future.
