Gravitas Ventures & the New Zealand Film Commission have announced they’re bringing the action comedy The Legend Of Baron To’a to US screens next month.
It’s bad enough that Fritz has to sell his family home…when he returns there to inspect it, he finds his father’s prize championship belt has been stolen! Fritz is determined to get the belt back, but it’s now in the possession of a dangerous street gang known as the Pig Hunters.
Fritz is a bit naive and thinks if he can get the chance to talk things over with gang leader Tahu, the man will understand and return the belt to his family. Instead, Fritz gets a beating for his attempt at kindness. It becomes clear the only way to get the belt back is to challenge and defeat the Pig Hunters in a wrestling match. Can Fritz prove he is just as worthy of the belt as his father was?
The Legend Of Baron To’a stars Uli Latukefu, Nathaniel Lees, Jay Laga’aia, Shavaughn Ruakere, & John Tui. It ws directed by Kiel McNaughton from a script written by John Argall, and produced by Kerry Warkia. It’ll be viewable on VOD platforms starting December 4.
Fritz, a displaced Tongan man, returns to the cul-de-sac of his youth to sell his family home. When a priceless heirloom – a championship wrestling belt belonging to his late father, Baron To’a, – is pillaged from the family home, Fritz’s uncle Otto cancels the sale of the house until the belt is returned. A local street thug reveals the belt is now in the possession of resident gang, The Pig Hunters.
