The Crane family has surprise guests... for dinner.

When a prison break doesn’t go as planned for the Tan Gang in New Zealand, they need to hide out—and they need hostages. Crashing into the garage of a suburban mansion near Wellington, the gang believes they’ve found the perfect refuge. Hemi and Margaret Crane (Temuera Morrison, Nicola Kawana) and their teenage children are a typical, middle-class Maori family. But their daughter Hanna (Hanna Tevita) has just come back from boarding school for the summer holidays, only to discover that her parents have embraced a drastic lifestyle change: cannibalism. To top it off, Hemi has become a martial arts fanatic. The Tan Gang have met their match, and things get even more complicated when Hanna develops feelings for one of her hostage-takers. A dark, tongue-in-cheek crime comedy, Fresh Meat puts a little something bloody, rare, and spicy on the viewing menu.
