UPROAR is a moving and heartwarming comedy about connection and finding your place in the world. 17-year-old Josh Waaka (Julian Dennison) is growing up in New Zealand in 1981. The rugby-obsessed country is divided over the arrival of the South African Springboks team, sparking nationwide protests. Josh, who has never felt like he fits in anywhere, is inspired by the protests and by a newfound passion for performing to find his own voice. After embracing his community and his Māori heritage, Josh and his family set out on a journey towards healing.
