Born into a small African tribe, Sara's first experience with grief is when her older sister, Fatuma, undergoing a rite of passage, dies as a result of the Wise Woman's poor hygiene skills. Then the entire tribe is afflicted by a great drought which affects the whole area. Taking a bold decision, the tribe appoint a young man named Habeel to be their leader and he recommends that to survive they must leave all that they have built behind and start anew somewhere else or they will all die.
Reluctant at first, eventually the tribe agree to follow their newly elected leader, Habeel, to a new land.
However, the tribe's problems are not yet over and both Sarah and Habeel must face many difficulties and dangers before they can be together and they and the tribe will together overcome all the obstacles that have been placed in front of them.
