Set in the wild South Island of 1820s New Zealand, a feared Māori warrior, Te Rangitapu, goes in search of a mokomokai (preserved shrunken head) stolen from his tribe. The journey takes him to Babylon, a desolate whaling town where feuds among its formidable inhabitants are on the brink of turning into all-out war.
Te Rangitapu must battle against the townsfolks and Sarah Graham, a tough Scotswoman and local brothel owner, and gain the trust of the local Māori tribe in order to retrieve the precious head of his grandfather.
