Maria Vial is a white French farmer who runs (with her ex-husband, Andre, and his sickly father) a failing coffee plantation in an unnamed African country in the present day. Maria and Andre have a lazy mentally unstable son, Manuel, while Andre has another half-African son Jose. Civil war has broken out and rebel soldiers, many of them child soldiers, are advancing on the area. The French military, while pulling out, makes one final plea for Maria to leave, but unyielding in her desire to protect her family's home and blinded by her own anti-white prejudice she ignores the warnings. Meanwhile, a rebel DJ on the radio urges the rebels on and advocates attacks on emblems of colonialism. Maria's workers fearing the conflict flee. Maria stubbornly refuses to abandon the plantation and its harvest which will be ready in five days. Risking her life and unable to find Andre she drives to a village to hire men to finish harvesting of the coffee. On the way, she is forced to pay off bandits who threaten to kill her at a roadblock they have established. After hiring the workers she stops at the elementary school and collects Andre's other son Jose. Jose is upbeat boy of about 12. He is black and we later learn that his mother is the much younger housekeeper for Andre's father.
