Synopsis:
When a young Edwardian family leaves the shores of England to build a home in the wilderness of East Africa, what they encounter is beyond their imagination, but remembered forever by their 11 year old daughter. Based on the celebrated memoir by Elspeth Huxley The Flame Trees of Thika brings life to the colour and adventure of turn-of-the-century Kenya. In 1913, Robin (David Robb) and Tilly Grant (Hayley Mills), arrive with the dream of transforming a barren plot of land into a thriving coffee plantation. But torrential rains, relentless insects and murderous animals along with the natives and other settlers challenge their ambitions.
Will England call them back? Or will the wide-eyed wonder of young Elspeth (Holly Aird) unlock the mysteries of a foreign land and open the doors into the pleasures and rewards of an exciting new home?
