In 1937, the non-orthodox Jewish German lawyer Walter Redlich, aware of the growing danger posed by the Nazi movement in Germany and how it would jeopardize the Jews in his country, moves alone to Nairobi, Kenya, to administrate a farm. His only friend is the also Jewish German Süßkind and his African cook Owuor. In 1938, Redlich’s wife Jettel and their young daughter Regina arrive. Regine easily adapts to her new lifestyle, but Jettel does not adapt well to her new life as a poor expatriated woman in Africa.
