Pedro Rosa Medes, a prizewinning journalist, decides to travel across Africa, from Angola to Mozambique. His journey through these two former Portuguese colonies - devastated by twenty years of civil war - is fraught with danger and obstacles. Along the way he meets a fascinating miscellany of characters: guerillas and soldiers, international relief workers and corrupt local officials, widows and orphans, fishermen and refugees. Their stories mingle with his in this extraordinary journey that no history or conventional travel book can match.
