(The film is) a tribute to all those soldiers of 28 Battalion who were lost and to the mana and lives of those who were not. It is a film made by us for them that we now take to the world in their honour.
– Tama Tū press kit
They are a bunch of young men, all Maori, from rural New Zealand (possibly some are related), who have a special bond, strengthened by their character, their culture and each other. They are a tight unit, they know each other and care for each other, they are brothers. But most of all they are young boys.
– Director Taika Waititi, in the Tama Tū press kit
