In a post-apocalyptic future and set in a North America controlled by the military, children are considered state property. They are separated from their parents and live in boarding schools where they are trained to fight for the regime. Niska is one of the indigenous Cree people. She hides in the forest with her 11-year-old daughter Waseese to escape the security drones that permanently fly over them. But in the age of cutting-edge technology, this is extremely difficult.

Canadian director Danis Goulet has created a cinematic dystopia set in a near future marked by war and an epidemic of an unknown disease. But Night Raiders is also a powerful parable about the plight of indigenous people everywhere. Told by strong female characters in the language of the Cree Nation, the story is both disturbing and poetic at the same time. This Canadian-New Zealand film was produced by celebrated New Zealand director and producer Taika Waititi.
