Just watched this classic Kiwi film again. What a great story of how mana (strength of character, strength of mind, strength of spirit) can overcome any obstacle. It’s a story of a woman who went through hell and came out strong, and a man who thought he could control everything, but ended up with nothing.
Beth: “Our people once were warriors. But unlike you, Jake, they were people with mana, pride; people with spirit. If my spirit can survive living with you for eighteen years, then I can survive anything.”
