Redemption is the dark and tender story of two Maori kids trying to find their way through personal hells. Teenagers Zig and Jaffa get totally wasted, and as always take the broken path from the house to Jaffa’s shed to play Redemption. They have discovered a way to take the violence and pain in their young lives and transform it into pleasure, healing and ultimately love. Redemption is their favourite game; however, in this coming of age story, survival may not bring a happy ending.
