Minka is a teenage Polynesian boy living in the heart of Auckland. With his P-addicted mother well on the way to going completely off the rails, three people enter his life - each with a promise - each with the power to destroy. Through his father, a gangster and strip club owner, Minka comes into contact with the sociopathic drug dealer Pinball, for which he begins to run drugs, while developing a relationship with Zoey. Soon he has to decide whether he is a gangster or the last saint in a world of drugs, sex and violence. There is a real need for subtitles, largely due to segments of very loud music. Otherwise the video and audio technical quality is quite good. The ending is ridiculous, but maybe it's just me.
