Summary
A contemporary story with a strong message, The Pā Boys, follows a fictional Wellington reggae band as they embark on a tour 'down north', from Wellington to Cape Reinga. Staring Fran Kora (from the band KORA) and Matariki Whatarau (Go Girls, The Almighty Johnsons), The Pā Boys is a story about life, death, and music, with the prerequisite number of laughs and good vibes that captures the best of NZ talent, landscape, and music. On the surface Danny (Fran Kora) has everything, but despite that he struggles to feel like he belongs. Tau (Matariki Whatarau) on the other hand knows his history, his culture, and his place. But with that knowledge comes a burden. As the band tours, personal insecurities threaten to overwhelm the musical connection that comes naturally to them. Their travels expose Danny and Tau to a spiritual history that cannot be avoided and when unresolved events from their past must be confronted it's Danny who holds the key. The connection to the music and the spirit world makes sense of life and death for Danny, who must step out of the shadows to find understanding and belonging
