Ten families made up of nearly 40 individuals talk intimately about Maori-Pakeha cross-cultural relationships, marriages and children. From the well known - Ranginui Walker, Tipene O'Regan and Carol Hirschfeld - to unknown 'ordinary' New Zealanders, these case studies examine the trials and victories of brown and white entering each other's worlds. In the process of telling their love stories, the subjects discuss vital issues such as cultural confusion, racism, personal and national identity and family politics. All of the stories are different, yet all add up to a theme running deep within New Zealand's past and present - the meeting of peoples, the mixing of their blood and the society created out of that cultural blending.
