Inspired by the true stories of New Zealand's street gangs across 30 years, Savage follows Danny at three defining moments in his life as he grows from a boy into the violent enforcer of a gang.
Each chapter is set in a defining time for New Zealand street gangs: from the tough state-run boys' homes of the sixties where many gang members grew up; to the emerging urban gang scene in the seventies where teenagers created their own gang families and fought rival gangs; to the eighties when gangs became more structured, criminal and violent. Across his lifetime Danny searches for connection, torn between his real family and his gang family, and must find where he belongs.
