At a South African farm in the 1870s, life is quiet and mind-numbing for Lyndall
(Kropinski), a feisty orphan who reads Karl Marx and grudgingly puts up with her
cranky guardian, the God-fearing Tant Sannie. When an evil, top-hatted stranger
named Bonaparte Blenkins (Grant) arrives, the farm's placid stasis is
interrupted. While older viewers might appreciate the sun-drenched Southern
Hemisphere landscapes, it's likely that only younger segments of the audience
will cheer the inspiring but very predictable ending.
