Bone, Bafu, Rock, Ngeta and Bomu are five unemployed young men who live in a Nairobi slum and spend their days living off others in a life of gambling and trickery.

Their lives are dramatically transformed when in comes Nancy, a young, beautiful girl straight from the USA. In the ensuing whirlwind romance with Bone, Nancy’s wealth transforms the five youth.

It is only when his friends start dying one by one in mysterious circumstances that Bone realizes, almost too late, that all along he has been a victim of an elaborate and mysterious revenge mission.

Told against the background of the 1991 so called tribal clashes in Molo, the story examines the role of children in the conflict. It shows the predicament of the youth, who were only children then but who are now adults with questions in their mind, and anger in their hearts.
