I hope the choppers come before the crocs get us...
Based on the true life experiences of a young Italian woman, who went to live on a ranch in Kenya with her newly-wedded husband and six year old son. Life is tough, the rythym is slower and very different to the Italy she left behind. She has to draw on all her reserves to overcome the tragedies that hit her life, as well as dealing with poachers and natural hazards.

Ian Douglas: Episodic in the extreme, with an overly romanticised view of life and Africa. It probably worked okay as a novel, especially if tailored for an American audience, but fails to convince those of us in Africa... It may appeal more to women. Life stories normally do not make good movies. On the plus side, the scenery is great.
