John Speke comes to Uganda to study education at Makerere University as part of a British aid program to provide post-colonial East Africa with the teachers it so desperately needs.

There he meets Mutima, a young member of the Baganda tribe, related to their royal family, and her brother Jonah, a political activist standing against the oppressive regimes of Milton Obote and later Idi Amin.

As John and Mutima’:s relationship grows, the young Englishman finds himself inadvertently drawn ever deeper into Jonah’:s campaign of civil unrest, culminating in a failed attempt to overthrow Amin himself.

Imprisoned in Uganda’:s notorious Makindye Prison, John is beaten, humiliated, and finally broken. To his shame, he gives his brutal captors Jonah’:s whereabouts.

An unknown benefactor arranges John’:s release, but his prison experiences leave deep emotional scars. Filled with guilt and self-loathing, John declares his contempt for Africa and all its people—:including Jonah, Mutima, and John's own unborn child.

But once safely back in the United Kingdom, John’:s guilt festers. Faced with the specter of his own mortality, following a near fatal heart attack, he returns to Uganda, hoping to reconcile with the woman he loved and the child he’:s never met—:a young girl called Malaika.
