It’s 1904, and Germany has claimed all of South West Africa. Since the Herero would rather fight than surrender their ancestral homes, General von Trotha has declared that they all should be forced into the Omaheke to die. Surviving on her own in the desert, 12-year-old Jahohora searches for her family while hiding from the German soldiers. Wasting away, she is about to give up her desperate struggle for life when she finds hope in a simple act of kindness from a Jewish doctor serving in the German army.
