A young scientist freed by divorce from a nagging wife, isolates himself from women. His peace is broken by a lovely young girl to whom he is forced to give shelter. He marries her and finds that his dumb wife is not so dumb.
The film is centred around a man who, after spending a dozen years performing music in London, returns to his home, a small African village, to teach it. His visit coincides with that of two doctors who are working on eradicating the African Sleeping Sickness. The somewhat evil chief, Magole, does not welcome either, saying Kisenga has been away too long to be one of them anymore, and that the young female doctor is trying to kill them all, because her medicines go against his brand of voodoo witchcraft. It's pretty crazy, but actually an interesting story, though there's not enough of Calvert and Portman, and far too little of their budding romance. But hey, it's nice to see Calvert in technicolour for a change! 8/10
