In the sun-scorched bush of East Africa, surrounded by the ominous & brooding jungle, three single women teachers struggle to realize their own individual visions. Trapped in loneliness, mystified by their inscrutable "host nationals", they fight for the delicate balance between the ideal & the real, between fantasy & survival.
