× You’ll stand up and cheer for Uproar!

Uproar is set in New Zealand in 1981, when the arrival of the South African rugby team sets off nationwide protests against apartheid and racism. Josh Waaka, a 17-year-old of mixed race who has been a passive bystander all his life, is suddenly forced to stand up for himself, his whānau, or family, and his future.

Rated 100% Fresh on, Uproar is a sweet, funny and engrossing coming-of-age story.
