Femtenårige Samantha gør alt det forkerte, først og fremmest fordi hun ikke vil gøre det rigtige, alt det, der forventes af hende.
Hun synes ikke, hun passer ind nogen steder. Hun er engelsk og hvid udenpå, males taler swahili og har boet i Tanzania, siden hun var tre.
Hun er ved at blive voksen, hun har en voldsom appetit på livet, hun har akut brug for holdepunkter i tilværelsen, ikke mindst for, at nogen holder af hende; males skolen keder hende, forældrene og lærerne er umulige, hendes jævnaldrende venner nogle tøser og drengerøve.
Hun kan ikke styre sig, hun lægger sig ud med alle. Hun bringer sig selv i fare og i umulige situationer, alkohol og stoffer fylder mere og mere i hendes liv, hun bliver sin egen værste fjende.
Det kan ikke blive ved med at gå.

It coincided with the British-led campaign against the Belgian forced labor abuses in the Congo. Hollis’s memorandum, therefore, was a potential source of embarrassment. The CO sat on the issue for a while. During the interim, the governor of Kenya, James Hayes Sadler, reemphasized in another circular that government policy was to aid in recruiting labor. At this point, the CO finally responded in August 1908. In the dispatch the new secretary of state Lord Crewe (Robert Crewe-Milnes) instructed the governor that it was not the policy of the government to recruit African labor.
A manifestation of this process of relative autonomy was the 1912 Native Labour Commission. Although the intent of the Native Labour Commission was to bring more clarity to the labor problems in the East Africa Protectorate (EAP), the final report of the commission did not bring closure but instead posed more questions. With the outbreak of World War I, forced labor intensified and the issue of coercion of African labor would not be dealt with until the end of the war. 6 After the completion of the Uganda railway from the coast of Kenya to the interior at Kisumu on the shores of Lake Victoria in 1902, the administration began to encourage European settlement as a way of paying off the debt of construction plus making the railway economically viable.
