Storyline

After the tragic death of her husband, Monica, a young Italian doctor, takes over the running of a hospital in Africa in which most of the patients are tourists. She and her eight-year-old daughter Sara move into low-cost accommodation on a farm owned by a German couple, the Brandts, and very soon become part of the family. Monica falls in love with Alexander, the Brandts' son, who left Germany after separation from his wife and a series of business failures, hoping to forge a new future for himself in Africa. Based at his parents' farm, he works as a tourist guide, organising fascinating trips to the natural beauties of his homeland. An injured tourist, the outbreak of an epidemic and the unpredictability of the elements all provide Monica, Sara and Alexander with plenty of exciting adventures. Written by Anonymous
