Nina has emigrated to New Zealand from wartime Croatia. When she falls in love with (and gets pregnant to) a Māori man, and marries a Chinese man for money, domineering Father Ivan is furious. Director Gregor Nicholas had attracted acclaim for his short film Avondale Dogs and Broken English was his anticipated second feature. It is notable for being one of the few films in which NZ's dominant Pākehā culture hardly features. Broken screened internationally, won prizes at festivals, and was one of the highest grossing NZ films of the 1990s.
