An adventure Western set in New Zealand at the time of the Gold Rush in 1860.
Young Charlotte Lockton has settled in the North Island with her wealthy husband, David. But her life's dreams are shattered when he's murdered on their farm and her baby son is kidnapped. A month after paying a ransom, frustrated with the apathy of the authorities and distrusting of her staff, she decides to track him down on her own. And so begins her journey through the wilds of an untamed New Zealand, at the beginning of the Gold Rush. She comes into contact with Villains, Suffragettes, Hustlers, Chinese Grocers and native Maori Warriors.
She joins a convoy of Whores, Dancers and Ex-cons heading for the rough mining community of Gold Town. There she meets Kristian Morgensen, the owner of the town, a man who is key to uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of her son, forcing her to fight to the death for what she holds most dear.
'The Stolen' has an exciting drive and is a 'good yarn', strong drama and potent material for great performances.
