Fires light the sky over Kibera - East Africa's largest slum. It is the prelude to the bloody violence that erupts during Kenya's presidential elections. Joshua Otieng is caught between the brutal realities of life in the slum, and his dream of a return to the glories of his ancestral past. Mayasa is a young woman he believes could share his dreams, but he becomes inexorably swept along in the tide of tribal conflict surrounding the upcoming elections. Journalist Mark Riley travels to Kenya to find a missing orphan, and to escape the pain from his past. Two women - feisty anthropologist Charlotte Manning and beautiful, mysterious Kazlana Ramanova - rekindles his interest in the world. On a journey to the Serengeti, surrounded by the epic landscapes of Africa, they each discover that danger lurks everywhere and there is more to fear than just the wildlife...
