From the Writer and Director of The Orator - O Le Tulafale, One Thousand Ropes is a story of a father reconnecting with his daughter, set in Wellington New Zealand. Maea, once lived by his fists, but now old, has turned his powerful hands to healing and bread making. He strives to live a simple and peaceful life, remaining in the same housing estate he came to when he emigrated from Samoa many years ago, but his family have gone. He atones for his past by easing the pain of child bearing for young pregnant women and their families who seek his help; resisting the authorities who want him to modernise. He also contends at work with the threat of losing his job at a local bakery as new equipment takes over, and at home an abusive spirit who has moved in with him, relentlessly taunting him while providing company. When his youngest daughter returns to him, she arrives vulnerable: heavily pregnant and badly beaten. He struggles with the inner temptation and the encouragement from the men in his life, to take revenge in the way he knows best on one hand and on the other, to build the new family and companionship so desperately missing from his life. If he can return to his daughter, what he had taken from her mother, all their destinies will be reshaped. One Thousand Ropes is a deeply moving film about connections, redemption and new beginnings.
