Little Girl’s War Cry is the story of a ten-year old Maori girl, Tiare, born on the island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Raised by a struggling single mother, whose repeatedly abused by her boyfriend, Tiare shelters herself from reality with her hero-centered imagination, until a prank goes wrong and she must directly confront the violence that stains her childhood and family. Influenced by cultural elements around her and her will to fight back, Tiare discovers not only a deeper-rooted identity, but also an inner strength driven by the power of a mother and child’s love.
