The causes of the rebellion were several, chief amongst which was the poll tax imposed on the indigenous people.

A Scottish family buys a dairy farm near the forest. The family has a connection to the uprising of 1906 in that their grandfather was in charge of the colonial force which defeated the rebels. The uprising is commonly called the Bambatha Rebellion after one of the leaders. Bambatha was never captured and several rumours were current at the time. He was supposed to have escaped to Mozambique, promising to return. Others say his spirit still haunts the forest.The farmer thinks nothing of his family’s connection to the massacre in the gorge.

His wife, on the other hand, experiences feelings of unease. Then, her daughter starts to have nightmares. The farmer dismissed his wife’s feelings as irrational. She wishes to leave the farm, but her husband ignores her wishes. The climax of the story takes place during a picnic in the forest. It is clear that the score between the Zulu rebels and the Scottish family needs to be settled once and for all.The final scene of the story takes place during 2006, the centenary of the Bambatha Rebellion.

The new generation of the Scottish family learns about their family history, but not all of it. One member of the family had a guilty secret to hide.
