Synopsis / Plot
Based on the book "Out of Africa" by Danish writer Isak Dinesen (her real name was Karen Blixen). Karen Blixen, a Danish woman, marries a friend for the title of Baroness and they move to Africa and start a coffee plantation. Things unfold when her husband begins cheating on her and is away on business often, so she's at home alone, working on the farm and bonding with two men she met in her first day in Africa. She eventually falls in love with the one, Denys Finch-Hatton, and goes on safari and whatnot with him.
