11-year-old Jimmy from England lives in South Africa and is often alone when his mother works. He hears that a war is to break out between two tribes near Pareo Rock. When a speaking giraffe prompts him to prevent the war, he embarks on the most thrilling adventure of his life, teaming up with the self-confident Charita. Together they travel the land on foot, by zebra, by truck and by helicopter, the two of them symbolizing the future and the equality of black and white people.
