When Niarra (palawa) and Te Umuroa (Māori) come across the last remaining Tasmanian Tiger, their only option is to hide it in Aotearoa (New Zealand).
Keen conservationists and best friends, Niarra and Te Umuroa are checking their bush cams one weekend and spot a Tasmanian Tiger. He reveals himself to the duo and leads them to a cave filled with ancient palawa art. A world of magic opens up for them as they quickly escape the clutches of some determined hunters to set sail for Aotearoa. But the journey has its challenges when they are visited by Māori Gods and palawa spirits who become obstacles for the two voyagers, opening them up to a surreal display of culture and belonging.
Forced to face their own culture’s differences and similarities, the voyagers, with Tigs the Tassie Tiger at the helm, arrive in Aotearoa where their lives are changed forever.
