Storyline

What if you could turn back the clock and watch the minds forming of those who would create political zeitgeist shifts in the future - the US's first black President Barack Obama, South America's first indigenous President Evo Morales, or Denmark's first female Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt. MAORI BOY GENIUS does just that. Future leader Ngaa Rauuira is railing against his people's statistics of uneducated youth, 40% of prisoners, alarming suicide rates and a dying language. His tribe believes he will save them. At 16 he studies politics at Yale, his family of 8 facing his US$35,000 education bill. Within a year he is leading a major protest and being asked to stand for Parliament. ONCE WERE WARRIORS depicted urban Maori 16 years ago. This is the surprising update. Written by Anonymous
