Rosewitta is born somewhere in Africa, in a large but poor family. Her mother Hattie, and the rest of the family struggle to survive on a daily basis; in a society laden with certain cultural beliefs and imbalances. As Rosewitta's life story unfolds, the realities about women's lives in such an environment also unfold. But how do the women survive? How do they raise very large families? Does anyone recognize what these women do? Are attitudes towards them changing? At the end does Rosewitta succeed in her search for a better life? What happens to all those women whom she represents?
