Synopsis: 

Set in 2007, Tāneatua on the East Coast of New Zealand, Muru is based on a real event - a raid by the New Zealand Government's elite Special Tactics Group on a remote Māori township as they search for evidence of terrorism. During the raid, a single gunshot is fired, triggering a chain reaction of events which ultimately forces local Tūhoe Police Sergeant, Taffy, to make a choice between allegiance to his badge, or the safety of his whānau (family), bringing him into the deadly path of Captain Gallagher and Sgt. Kimiora.
