Bad weather is not the issue here. The storms are personal and ecological. Wildlife is being poached in Zimbabwe's game parks, and local farmer Richard Duran has to get over the facts that his Aussie ladylove inadvertently slept with his son and his rebellious daughter is pregnant by a tribal activist. Many voices and accents are called for here, and Jerome Pride's Australian birth and UK theater experience come in handy as he makes each character stand out. You can't miss Richard's anger and anguish or Steve's (this is the girl) guilt and determination. Some of the action is grisly, so beware. Otherwise, you will enjoy this well-narrated adventure.
