Synopsis

Soane, a young man of Wallisian origin from New Caledonia, defies his father’s authority to go play rugby in France. French, but not considered such and left to his own devices on the other side of the world, Soane struggles to get the recognition that he deserves. Driven by his thirst for freedom, he fights for his dream and his identity.


This intense and tough ‘rugby thriller’, the first feature by Sacha Wolff, is set in France and New Caledonia. The film successfully conveys the dichotomies that the main character faces through the very physical performance of Toki Pilioko and a visually adept translation into cinemascope format: the opposition between land and sea, the father and son conflict, two opposing cultures that share the same nationality. It is Soane’s wild haka cry (familiar to New Zealand audiences) that finally helps him to free himself from these dichotomies and come to terms with his own identity
