Punching above its weight against international political adversaries, standing up to nuclear powers and for racial equality, New Zealand has a war to win on the best battle-ground we know, a rugby field. Through the eyes of four of the world’s greatest rugby players, on the playing field of the 1987 World cup, this is the compelling story of how an amateur rugby team fought for a nation’s pride in turbulent times ultimately carving out the identity of a country.
