Description: "I Dreamed of Africa" is inspired by the true story of the indomitable Kuki Gallmann, a beautiful, inquisitive woman who had the courage to escape from her comfortable yet monotonous life in Italy to start anew in the wilds of Africa with her son Emanuele and her husband Paolo. Though first in awe of the incredible power of nature and sense of freedom in the wide open Kenyan countryside, Kuki soon discovers that life in rural Africa is not a fairy tale existence. Wild elephants and lions roam the land unhindered, devastating storms destroy all in their path and desperate poachers ruthlessly murder endangered animals. Yet through the most trying of setbacks, Kuki emerges as resilient, filled with the strength of desire to take on life lovingly and fearlessly.
