The tiny Pacific Island nations of Tonga, Fiji and Samoa reconnect with their warrior heritage and take on the giants of the Rugby World Cup in this remarkable documentary uncovering the story of the greatest underdogs in professional sport. For the Pacific Islands, the game of rugby has become the modern expression of their traditional warrior spirit. During the World Cup in France, Tonga pushed the boundaries of rugby to the limit on and off the pitch, nearly resulting in the greatest ever upset in professional sport and potentially changing the game forever. Accessible to rugby fans and newcomers alike, and with contributions from the greats of rugby, "Pacific Warriors" is a unique, humorous and personal insight into two very contrasting worlds, all united in their passion for one sport.
