Abstract

An allegory of the failed state of colonialism, a white woman's refusal to leave her coffee plantation in a fictional African country brings the civil war to her. Warned by French officials and military to leave, Maria is determined to see the harvest through to earn profits and keep her land. Rebels overthrow her claims to the land and her family in violent ways.
