A traditional rural woman has always risked body and soul, without reward or thanks, to farm her husband’s land and keep the family fed and cared for. She fights unfavourable weather, pests and poverty. But when Manyusi squanders her prized harvest, and schemes to marry off their daughter, Fatuma has to fight her husband.
