In the Gold Coast of Africa, in 1751, aggressive slavers working to meet the needs of ever larger slave ships, take an entire rainforest tribe into slavery. The main character, Kusi, aged 15, only just recognized as adult and newly married escapes and chases the slavers down river to the city of Axim. The slaves arrive earlier and depart swiftly transferring directly from boat to ship. Kusi is not able to confront the slavers thus is dead ended in his quest. He is frustrated, demoralized, and does not understand what has happened.
