Sabaku and his buffalo buddy don’t need big words to understand one another. Alas when his good-natured companion keels over in the savannah sun one day, Sabaku must find a new friend – after all, who wants to travel through this world all alone? In a simple yet poetic way, as in ZEEZUCHT (Generation 2016), Marlies van der Wel tells the colourful tale of an unusual bird in search of a friend that might be able to understand him for real.
