Frank Rautenbach leads a strong cast as Angus Buchan, a Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and racially charged land reclaims, and travels south with his family to start a better life in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land, and help from his Zulu foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggle to settle in a new country.

Faced with ever mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction.

Based on the inspiring true story by Angus Buchan, the book was adapted for the big screen by award winning actor and director, Regardt van den Bergh and weaves together the moving journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest.
