These are the life and times of an African family as the 80s move on. There is are a trioof boys who have a burning ambition to burn the midnight oil. Tapiwa Chakauya makes it to university which is the ultimate prize the family wants. Everyone else thought the Chakauya boys would end up looking into the mouths of misfiring diesel engines as their father does. He is the pacesetter for his family. In quick succession things change, his sister marries and has a wedding. Oh, those lonely hearts cannot mend, she is married. Who will become an account, a barrister, a pharmacist and a deputy headmistress of these children? Tapiwa, Thomas and even Caroline do what was the impossible by gracing the doors of the state university, a feature that is unique. Then Tapiwa is on attachment after going through his paces with the girls that come and go or return again. He has a tax problem which leads him to Josephine Dube a down to earth woman who likes mixing work, studies and church who comes from a well to do working class family that reads the Bible in the evening and likes the power of prayer. Her ideals, her morals and Tapiwa's do not agree yet something ties him to her as he progresses through the penultimate year at university and beyond. What makes him continue to meet and rely on Josephine. She is not an attractive charming woman neither is she the modern trendsetter type. He dumps Josephine going with the trendy women of the day yet his heart is yearning. There is an emptiness which he continues to feel. Will he return and pick off where he left off with Josephine and will she stay the years away from him trusting that he will come back?
