What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted?' is the powerful, much anticipated sequel to the international smash hit 'Once were Warriors'. Temuera Morrison and Rena Owen return to their roles as Jake and Beth Heke.

After Beth left him to seek a life beyond the violence and uncertainty, Jake the Muss turned his back on his family. While he found a new woman, Rita, he's still up to his usual tricks in McClutchy's Bar, unaware, as he downs his latest opponent, that his eldest son, Nig is dying in a gang fight. At the funeral, the uncomfortable family reunion sparks a confrontation with second son, Sonny which sets Jake on a downward spiral: He argues with Sonny, is banned from McClutchy's, loses Rita and makes a fool of himself fighting in front of new friend. Ultimately, Jake turns his rage and frustration on himself -- a cowering, shattered figure, the ''foetus-curl of a fallen giant
