Illicit brewers, greedy landlords, and cheating recipients of aid. Chick takes up the challenges of a young American woman who starts a self-help group for disabled persons. In the Kenyan context, where a hundred years of missionary work has led some to “wait for donations from America” even the simple task of building a chicken house is tricky. Their group development is shown in a weekly meeting beset with both frustration and success. How do you give, without giving? Where gifts have multiple meanings, generosity must be redefined.
