Harry and his family are originally from Samoa and there are a lot of people in this area from this island.
There is a lot of violence in this film, especially involving the drug dealers and it's based on true events. There is one story covered in each episode and some of the violence stays with you in your mind after viewing. In some ways, this is like the Prime Suspect TV Series with Helen Mirren. 3* (This series is OK)
