Fleeing persecution in Poland, a young Jewish family settle in Ireland, but enduring poverty, hardships and little support from a grieving father, two young brothers take matters into their own hands and set sail for Africa.
It was 1891 when Morris (16) and David (15) Langbourne arrived in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and quickly put their business plan into action. They team up with Nguni, a gentle giant from the Xhosa tribe, who guides and protects them in the African bush from predators they didn't even know existed.
With a solid grounding their parents instilled in their upbringing, the boys learn to adapt and accept Africa's ways, her people, cultures and her commercial business with unbelievable results.
