Episode 5: The Giraffes Go to Hamburg

Soon after Karen Blixen relocates to East Africa, she finds herself alone in a foreign land with the enormous responsibility of trying to operate a successful coffee plantation.

In order to accomplish this, she must get to know the land and the East Africans who work for and with her.

In the process, she learns more about herself.

As Karen faces her greatest fear - the necessity of departure from Africa - the grasshoppers come and seal her fate.

And there is still worse to come.
