Savage hits digital this January!

Vertigo Releasing is delighted to present SAVAGE, available on digital platforms from 1st January 2021. It stars Jake Ryan (Home and Away), John Tui (Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw), and Chelsie Preston Crayford (Underbelly) with Seth Flynn and Poroaki Mcdonald.

SAVAGE is a hard-hitting drama that explores various points of one man’s life as he ultimately searches for connection and family. Inspired by stories from New Zealand’s boys’ homes and the early history of our gangs, Savage follows Danny across 3 different ages at important junctures that push and pull him towards and away from gang life.

Each chapter of Danny’s life is a complete short story set in a defining time for NZ gangs: from the abusive state-run boy’s homes of the sixties; to the emerging urban gang scene in the seventies where disenfranchised teenagers created their own families on the streets; to the eighties when gangs became more structured, criminal, and violent.

Together the three chapters combine to create a deeper look at a boy who grows up to become the brutal enforcer of a gang; to understand how he got there. Savage is about Danny’s search for belonging and connection and explores the notion of family. Danny is torn between his real family and his gang family and must choose where he belongs.

Inspired by real stories from New Zealand and its history of gang culture, experience one man’s journey for personal connection in a world full of violence with impactful drama SAVAGE, directed by Sam Kelly, available on digital platforms 1st January 2021.
