Contents: This film takes a look at an episode in the early life of famous Afrikaans poet Eugene Marais. After spending two years in the wild studying baboons and ants, he arrived at a farm looking for water. He was in a bad way, so the farmer took him in so he could recover. It wasn't long before the farmer's wife fell in love with him, but he was more attracted to the farmer's young adopted daughter, who had another admirer of her own. This complex romantic quadrangle got even more complicated when the daughter discovered his morphine habit, and started rationing it out to him. In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.

Eugene Marais was not only a remarkable poet and naturalist, but an extraordinary person whose life was a continuous source of drama and controversy. In 1908, he is a qualified lawyer who has just spent a solitary 2 years living amongst the baboons of the remote Waterberg; studying their habits.

On his way to Nylstroom, in the grip of a Malaria induced fever, he stops on a farm looking for drinking water. Observing his weakness and the seriousness of his illness, Gys van Rooyen and his wife Maria take him into their home to recover.

Maria leads an unfulfilled life and she is lonely. The forty year old Eugene Marais is attractive, charming and mysterious. She, as many women before her, falls in love with him. There are two others resident in the house, the Van Rooyen's son Adriaan, and a seventeen year old adopted daughter Jane Brayshaw.
