Heni helps to build a pa for war, but when she sees the 2000 British soldiers marching towards them, fear hits. The Ngaiterangi tribe are outnumbered almost ten to one and the British soldiers have a massive artillery of 17 cannons aimed at their fences. What's worse, during the night soldiers carried a cannon through the swamp to their rear, and now they're surrounded. Heni stayed in the pa with her brother, when all the women and children left. When the shells begin bursting above their trenches, there's no escape. And when their fences are blasted to pieces and the soldiers charge into the pa, there's no hope. Will Heni and her brother die together? This poignant and sensitively told story promotes racial reconciliation.
