The story begins in Bumi Hills Lodge, Hwange, Zimbabwe where Isaac and Brett work. Aside from being work colleagues, these two are like brothers. Their parents are large-scale farmers and close friends even though Brett’s family is white and Isaac’s black. They grew up together, with Brett’s mother, Ruth becoming like second mother to Isaac when he lost his own. Despite the great kinship they have between them, they are very different character wise. Brett’s other close companion is his Nikon- his love for filming and photographing the wildlife is endearing while Isaac is happiest at the farm, tinkering with beat up engines and old generators and mechanics.
