Description

South African scriptwriter Paul Waterson is in Kenya to carry out research for a documentary film. It’s October 2001, and his relationship has come to an unexpected end.

Searching for solace in Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu, he becomes obsessed with finding the last remaining mtepe dhow in Somalia, a magnificent, sewn vessel harking back to Africa’s rich maritime past. But getting someone to take him into Somali waters proves near impossible. When he does manage to talk a dhow captain into the journey, he and the crew are oblivious to the dangers that lie ahead.
