The Screen Guide

Christian Savage, a 12-year-old farm boy, spends his childhood years with Nyadze, the son of his mother's Zulu domestic worker. Growing up in vastly different cultures, the boys explore the delights of rural Africa - the land, the people and their religions. Doubts grow in Christian and he questions his destructive church until one day his friend's beliefs are etched in his soul forever.
