“I was sitting in a study room looking through a text book when Norm entered the room. As I recollect it he told everyone to get out but pointed at me to stay put. He then closed the door came over and punched me right in the face, I went down & he picked me up & punched me again, I tried to cover up on the ground but he started kicking at my head…
There was a point when I was smashing him and he said ‘my mother just died.’ I kept punching him and replied ‘So? I don’t care’……had someone not stopped me I don’t know whether I would have been able to stop myself.”
For the past 30 years, the Bully, former All Black, Norm Hewitt, and his victim, television actor, Manu Bennett, often thought about each other; about their time at boarding school; about the terror Manu experienced at the fists of Norm; and about the lives they both went on to live. They often wondered, independently, what they would say if they ever met.
Making Good Men documents this chance meeting and the wider impact it’s had on their families; we’ll reveal how it began and why with brutal honesty. But we’ll also discover how both men used their past and their hurt to rise to the top of their careers.
