Ethiopia – rarely on our TV screens unless it’s news of drought and famine. But this film tells a different story - a story of restored life and renewed hope. Using dramatic reconstruction and documentary footage it shows what is possible when the people from a remote village in the far north of the country decide to stay on and transform their land. Under the leadership of 'The Man of Fire', we witness their incredible struggle for survival in the midst of endless droughts and a brutal civil war.
