Abstract:

In the British East Africa country of Kenya, former childhood playmates Peter McKenzie and Kimani have maintained their deep friendship, even though they have a difference in race, class and tradition.

The men discover that even the strongest bond may be stronger than the beat of the drums or the crack of rifles and the cry for freedom.
