Ahikāroa is an engaging Māori serial drama. It incorporates culture, language and important modern issues in a meaningful and entertaining way.  Serious issues like homelessness, domestic violence, suicide, sexuality, emotional abuse, drug abuse, incarceration and more are experiences that everyone knows but no one talks about.

As a Māori drama, it also connects to the audience on a spiritual level exploring kaupapa like moemoeā, possession and communicating with those who have passed on.

The storylines are not just emotionally and physically relatable but spiritually evocative too.
