Born in 1930 to a recently widowed Englishwoman on a homestead in South Africa, little Peter Philip is schooled in the ways of England by his mother and the ways of Africa by a Zulu nanny, whose son Tonderai is also his best friend. Their peaceful life is shattered, however, when the farm’s cattle are claimed by rinderpest. PK’s mother succumbs to a nervous breakdown, and he is sent away to a conservative Afrikaans boarding school while she recovers.

Being the only English student at the boarding school, PK soon earns almost universal contempt from his scathing Afrikaner fellows—particularly from Jaapie Botha, an older student. Botha’s abuse and his inferiority complex strikes PK with a severe case of nocturnal enuresis, a habit which he eventually overcomes with local sangoma Dabula Manzi. In conquering his nightmares, PK is given a chicken (Mother Courage), which becomes his closest companion.
