With a female led creative team and a female protagonist, UNREST delivers an unpredictable twist on the detective genre.

The life of a British/Māori archaeologist is turned upside down, when she discovers the bones from a New Zealand dig site are not ancient Maori burials, but the result of something much more sinister. The series explores Maori spirituality and the power of tapping into the ancient knowledge of our indigenous roots.
