It is 1973 in the tiny village of Simbaru in eastern Sierra Leone. Yandi and Mila are not content with village life because the extreme poverty they experience is terrible. They are determined to avoid the ancient custom of polygamy and the grueling subsistence farming. They refuse to waddle in grim poverty like their parents and ancestors before them. With no formal education, they take their fate into their own hands. They escape the village to try their luck in the rich diamond fields of Kono. Will Yandi and Mila realise their dreams, or will the new life they encounter and embrace in Kono engulf them?
