Tatau follows Kyle and Budgie, two friends from London who travel to the Cook Islands and find themselves sucked into a world of Maori myths, symbols, and hallucinatory visions after Kyle gets a tattoo and later finds the body of a local girl, Aumea, tied up underwater – which later disappears.

Tatau will air on BBC Three Sunday, 12th April.
