Me Aroha ki ō Tuākana

Kaupapa

Ko Niniwa te pōtiki o tōna whānau.  Mōhio nei ōna mātua mē ōna hoa hoki ki ōna painga, ki ōna pūkenga hoki.  He kōhine pukumahi ia, ā, ka riro māna ngā mahi a ōna tuākana e pikau. Ahakoa tērā, kore rawa tōna tuakana e paku aro atu ki ōna painga, ka mutu ka tūkino ia i a Niniwa.  Ka noho ngā hoa o Niniwa ki tētahi ao motuhake, ā, he nui tō rātou aroha ki a ia.  He manu ōna hoa, he manu kōrero pēnei i te tangata.  Ka māharahara rātou katoa mō Niniwa me te hiahia ki te āwhina i a ia kia kore ia e tūkinotia e tōna tuakana. Ka whakatakoto rautaki rātou ... 

Description

Niniwa is the youngest of three sisters. She is a hard worker and her parent’s favourite child. Her older sisters gain a lot of pleasure from bossing Niniwa around. The oldest sister constantly bullies Niniwa and makes her do their chores as well as her own. To escape these hardships, whenever she can get away, Niniwa spends time with a special brood of birds, that live in another world called Taurikura. Her friends are aware of the difficulties Niniwa faces so together they decide to hatch a plan to get even with Niniwa’s sisters.
