Frank Rautenbach leads a strong cast as Angus Buchan, A Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and racially charged land reclaims and travels south with his family to start a better life in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land, and help from his foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggle to settle in a new country. Faced with ever mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction. Based on the inspiring true story by Angus Buchan, the book was adapted for the big screen by Regardt van den Bergh and weaves together the moving journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows in faith, unseen until the harvest. Angus Buchan wrote and published the book Like Potatoes in 1998 which continues to touch people from all age groups, social groups, backgrounds and cultures as is evident by its continued sales and the number of emails, faxes and letters Angus receives from readers on a daily basis. Angus and his wife Jill continue to live on their farm in Natal where they are actively involved in the community, serving as a fantastic working model for any African farm. They run a Childrens home for abandoned or orphaned children on their farm, a project that has been going on for over ten years and they oversee the running of a 200 pupil school that is situated nearby.
