"No matter where you go, there you are."


Jake Ryan is Savage in the trailer for the New Zealand drama

Inspired by stories from New Zealand’s boys homes and the early history of our gangs, Savage follows DANNY across three decades of his life: from the abusive state-run boys’ institutions of the sixties; to the emerging urban gang scene in the seventies where disenfranchised teenagers created their own families on the streets; to the eighties when gangs became more structured, criminal, and violent.

Together the three chapters of Danny’s life combine to create a deeper look at a boy who grows up to become the brutal enforcer of a gang; and understand how he got there.

Directed by Sam Kelly, the film stars Jake Ryan, John Tui, Haanz Fa’avae-Jackson, Chelsie Preston Crayford, and Seth Flynn.

Savage opens in New Zealand on 27th August 2020. It hits UK cinemas on 4th September 2020.
