This 2003 documentary follows seven weeks of a theatre-for-change course for troubled teens. As part of the acclaimed Te Rākau Hua O Te Wao Tapu programme, 30 teens from South Auckland's Northern Residential Centre are guided by director Jim Moriarty to create songs and plays based on their own stories. The process, from performing haka to confronting their demons and each other, proves challenging. Some don't make it the opening night, performing in front of family and the public. Directed by Stewart Main, the documentary screened as part of TV3's Inside New Zealand.

This is a therapy programme, this is a change programme. We want to try to help you make sense of what’s happened in your life so far that’s brought you to this place and time.
