A young woman is uprooted during the time of the last forest inhabitants of South Africaʼs Knysna forest of the 1930s. When she gets involved in an intimate relationship with an urban gentleman, her forest background proves an obstacle. Karoliena is coaxed into marriage, experiences the realities of progress, the power of money, the oppresion of nature, and what it will take to stay true to herself.
