The witty Nonni and the stuck-up city-boy Harry are the only ones to survive a massacre of a gang of poachers among the gamekeeper's family on his lonesome farm in the savanna. Now the ruthless murderers are after them as the only witnesses. Without a means of transportation, the only way to escape is to walk through 2000 kilometers of Kalahari desert with the help of the African bushman Xhabbo. On the months-long journey ahead they not only become good friends against their differences, but also realize that every one of them has strength and skills that are required to survive. Written by

I saw this film on tv (WAM network on cable). Everything about this movie was good except the book they took this movie from is realllly boring. I have to say that this is the first movie I have seen which has no script gaps (like they constancy include a character but he doesn't do anything) and is easy to understand. Reese and Ethan and Sarel were perfect and charming. The film was real and you can almost see it in real life. The filming was perfect (I don't come to see a movie which is entirely black). Overall this is a overall abnormally good family movie which isn't for brain dead toddlers (like Barney), but that a whole family can watch (even the teenagers) together.You might want to know there are assault rifles in the movie but they kept it to a absolute minimum and put no emphasis on them (not like a bloody action movie). Also your kids should understand that people can die and never come back ("they went to Jesus" would be a good thing to explain). Ultimately they should have chosen another book to do the film on but the film crew did a exceptionally good job at it. And I have no problems with it except the plot is boring (3 kids running across a dessert) but still SEE THE MOVIE WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY!.
