Into Africa tells the story of a novice motorcyclist who takes on the challenge of riding the length of the continent just because, ´it seemed like a great idea’.

Nowhere in Africa is the extraordinary tale of a Jewish family who flees the Nazi regime in 1938 for a remote farm in Kenya. Abandoning their once-comfortable existence in Germany, Walter Redlich, his wife Jettel, and their five-year-old daughter, Regina, each deal with the harsh realities of their new life in different ways. Attorney Walter is resigned to working the farm as a caretaker; pampered Jettel resists adjustment at every turn; while the shy yet curious Regina immediately embraces the country - learning the local language and customs, and finding a friend in Owuor, the farm´s cook. As the war rages on the other side of the world, the family’s relationships with their strange environment become increasingly complicated as Jettel grows more self-assured and Walter more haunted by the life they left behind. In 1946, with the war over, Regina´s fondest dream comes true when her brother Max is born. Walter´s decision, however, to return to his homeland to help rebuild a new Germany puts his family into turmoil again. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Max Roll.
