Against all odds, Wambu escapes Kitoe, but he is forced to leave behind Sirja and his sister Mawi, together with all the captive children of his village. To rescue the others, Wambu needs help from the white man Sirja has told him about. But to get there, he must first outrun his pursuers and then beat the jungle. And all the while, the further he gets from Sirja, the closer hovers his superstitious past. Hunted by foes, tormented by spirits, and plagued by malaria, he stumbles back to his old village, now reclaimed by the jungle.

Together they make a desperate, perilous effort to reach the white man...
