Kaitaki. 1976. As the Kaitaki Seniors gear up for the big game against "Ngapuk", usual tensions are heightened by a divisive rivalry for the captaincy and a disturbing spate of mysterious injuries. During the course of the match, fullback "Foreskin's" suspicions of foul play are confirmed when he witnesses a murderous assault on his own captain by an ambitious teammate "Clean". Already set apart by a university education, Foreskin's refusal to play the game and remain silent places him on a collision course with his coach Tupper, his team and the traditions of camaraderie that have shaped his life.
