This film takes a look at an episode in the early life of famous Afrikaans poet Eugene Marais. After spending two years in the wild studying baboons and ants, he arrived at a farm looking for water. He was in a bad way, so the farmer took him in so he could recover. It wasn't long before the farmer's wife fell in love with him, but he was more attracted to the farmer's young adopted daughter, who had another admirer of her own. This complex romantic quadrangle got even more complicated when the farmer's wife discovered his morphine habit, and started rationing it out to him. In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.
