At the dawn of the 20th century, young Dan Sullivan signs on to fight the Boers, but discovers war has horrors beyond the battlefields.
In East Africa, a railway crosses a land with an unimaginable throng of wild animals. Old Bill Freeman sees his chance to make his fortune as a hunter and convinces Dan to join his fledgling safari company. Bill’s young granddaughter, Liz, falls in love with Dan and with Africa — but tragedy forces her to return to Australia.
Years later, as the shadow of the Great War falls across the continent, Liz returns to Africa and the man she has dreamed of since childhood. But Dan has secrets that threaten to shatter their love, and he must finally decide what courage truly means.
