An entomologist takes on the 1970s New Zealand Government uncovering institutional racism and child abuse.
Dr. Oliver Sutherland discovers disturbing cases of abused children in state care, including imprisonment and torture of children as young as nine.
Niuean Hake Halo - who was sent to Lake Alice child and Adolescent Unit in 1975 at the age of 13 – and submitted to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) was just one of the children that Dr Oliver campaigned and advocated for with his organisation ACORD - the Auckland Committee on Racial Discrimination - across a 15-year period during the 70s and 80s.
Fighting a racist system, the insect scientist stands up to expose abuse in the notorious Lake Alice Psychiatric Hospital, but will justice ever be served?
"It's never too late for justice." - Dr. Oliver Sutherland
