A beautiful Swiss businesswoman leaves her husband for a powerful Masai warrior, whose intense jealousy eventually threatens to destroy their relationship. Corrine was spending two weeks in Kenya with her husband when she fell in love with the handsome Lketinga, whose tribal lifestyle stood in stark contrast to her urban upbringing. Despite the fact that he is illiterate and the two can barely communicate, Lketinga and Corrine soon wed. Afflicted with malaria and hepatitis, Corrine does her best to adjust to life among the Masai people, and even runs a grocery store in order to support her new community. Shortly after Corrine becomes a mother, however, Lketinga grows increasingly suspicious and domineering. Eventually, the realization that she and her husband are no longer in love prompts Corrine to gather her daughter, pack and pack their bags for a permanent vacation in Switzerland.
