Lent Week 4
A love story set in colonial East Africa during the Second World War. A new country, Tanganyika, is being created with Britons, Germans, Asians and African tribes living side by side. Michael is an English farm manager, born and brought up in East Africa and Poppy a confident, idealistic, Indian girl, educated in England whose father is one of the wealthiest businessmen in the territory. Separated by class, race and outlook, their relationship grows and strains against a background of racial tensions and the war. A powerful look at the need to dissolve divisions of tribes, factions and cultural boundaries, and re-form, in the process of building a new country.
