Brothers war at
VENGEFUL Waruu TEAMS UP WITH Slade FOR A DANGEROUS INITIATIVE THAT COULD DESTROY THE HAIRIES’ UNIQUE ABILITIES AS Koen FIGHTS FOR WHAT’S RIGHT
K oen is determined to embrace his powers as the Cleverman so that he can protect the Hairy people but to do so he must fight not only the Government but his vengeful brother Waruu.
In the aftermath of the violent confrontation between the Containment Authority and the residents of the Zone, the survivors were rounded up into vans. A mysterious Hairy, named Jarli (Clarence Ryan), however has stopped them in their tracks allowing many to escape.
Most of them have headed to an abandoned warehouse and when Koen (Hunter Page-Lochard) tracks them down and sees their fear and anger he springs into action to help them.
Back in the City, new Minister for Human Safety Marion Frith (Rachael Blake) is taking a hardline stance against the Hairies and any of their associates. Slade (Iain Glen) is keen to help and joins forces with Waruu (Rob Collins), who is channelling his anger (over losing the respect of his people) into the assimilation project.
Waruu is heading up the program, titled the Inclusion Initiative, to rid Hairies of their excessive body hair and strength through chemicals, so that they can integrate into the human community.
Koen, meanwhile, is discovering the full extent of his powers and what they mean. His ability to see into the past proves confronting and challenges what he thought he knew about his parents’ deaths.
Shaken, Koen shows up at Waruu’s house not knowing the pressure Frith has put on his half-brother to reveal his whereabouts. Waruu attacks Koen and slashes his throat.
Waruu then taints his wound with a lump of red sap that Waruu believes is key to ridding Koen of his Cleverman immortality. Will Koen survive to stop the Government before anyone else gets hurt?
