Tracker is about an Afirkaner commando named Arjan van Diemen, who leads a group during the Second Boer War. Arjan is also a master tracker. When the war ends in victory for the British, Arjan leaves South Africa to the British colony of New Zealand. Upon his arrival, Arjan is recognized by a British Sergeant who fought for the British in the Second Boer War. Arjan is arrested as he enters. However, he is released at the request of a British military officer. Meanwhile, a Maori sailor named Keremea talks to his girlfriend about getting married. However, a drunken Sergeant Saunders arrives and object to the idea of a Maori marrying a British woman. Sanders and a few of his mean beat Keremea, but accidently kills one of his own. Saunders blames Keremea for the soldier’s death. Knowing he would receive an unfair trial, Keremea flees. Saunders convinces his superior officer to hire a tracker to find Keremea. The officer enlists the help of Arjan to get the job done. Keremea tries to cover his tracks to prevent capture, but is confronted by Arjan. Keremea knocks Arjan out and continues to flee for safety. However, the two encounter each other again and both find a commonality in their hatred for the British. Keremea explains to Arjan about the constant abuse of the British and how they burned down his home village. Arjan explains to Keremea about how an African friend of his was killed by the British for having an affair with a white woman and warns his new friend about facing the same fate. When the British, led by Saunders and his men meet with their tracker, Arjan lies to them saying that he did indeed kill their target. The British confront Arjan at the harbor for lying about killing Keremea. However, before they were able to capture him, Arjan flees for Australia.
