On a camping trip through the Kalahari bush Uys Lafra meets Teecha, of the San people. In a 7 day "apprenticeship" he is taught the basics of physical survival, and absorbs the Bushman's view of life. Teachings on faith, destiny, spiritual balance, on the nature of spirit and the beginning and ending of all things, overturn his own assumptions and change his life forever.
