Ordinary people find extraordinary courage in the face of madness. On 13-14 November 1990 that madness came to Aramoana, a small New Zealand seaside village. It came in the form of a lone gunman with a high-powered semi-automatic rifle. As he stalked his victims the terrified and confused residents were trapped in the village for 24 hours while a handful of under-resourced and underarmed local policeman risked their lives trying to find him and save the survivors. By dawn 13 people lay dead. This is a true story. Written by
Chris Cole is wearing a T-shirt that says: "Save our beach. Stop the smelter." This refers to the late 1970s proposal to build an aluminum smelter at Aramoana, which would have destroyed the township and threatened a local wildlife reserve, and met with a lot of resistance from residents.

I went to see this film on the day it was released. WOW what a awesome movie very powerful true and deeply moving. The way they have filmed it is good and its not as graphic as I thought it would be. Everyone in NEw Zealand should see this film but it is not one I recommended you watch alone as it is very sad. The actors in the movie play there parts great they all gave it 100% . One of the actors in the film is personally known to me and for the young age he is played his role very well considering what the film is about. I give this movie 10 out of ten for everything . Its a must see film .
