A sequel to her earlier film, Saikati (1992), this film continues the story of a young Maasai woman's efforts to find a place for herself in the modem world. Refusing the expected arranged marriage, she dreams of flight &endash; literally - as a nurse in a team of Flying Doctors, a crucial institution in East Africa. She moves to Nairobi, pursues a training course, and, in the midst of the realities of modern urban life, struggles to hold on to her naive dream.
