After a botched prison break the Tan brothers' gang takes refuge in suburbia where they invade the family home of Maori academic Hemi Crane. He and his wife Margaret, a successful TV chef, along with their teenage children Glenn and Rina don't seem to pose much of a threat to Ritchie and Paulie Tan, their fumbling accomplice Johnny and the smoking hot Gigi. Or do they?

The house might look like you standard suburban McMansion, but there's a few additions to the Crane residence that aren't on the architect's plans—like a bloody abattoir in the basement for instance, and a homeowner who's a devotee of an ancient Maori cult, on a mission to reintroduce cannibalism to the 21st century. The tables are set to turn in the unique mash up of comedy, horror and action.  And in the middle of this chaos Gigi and Rina are looking at each other with a whole different desire for human flesh.
