Synopsis

A sharply-perceived evocation of changing life in rural Zimbabwe during the 1960s and 1970s. Narrated from the point of view of a young boy, Godi, it follows the fortunes of a city-dwelling family who extablish a small farm in the country. As Godi grows himself, he observes the growth of the village as the people strive to resolve tensions between conflicting values and ambitions.
