Florence and her friend Nyasha are two 15 year old girls who live in a little village in Rhodesia. We are in 1975 and the "Chimurenga" (the war for independence) is raging. One night a group of "freedom warriors" come in to pick up volunteers. Florence, who likes action, and Nyasha, the intellectual, decide to enroll. From now on they will be known as "Flame" and "Liberty".
