General Matsika's children steal out of the house on a forbidden adventure - and disappear.

In Zimbabwe, in the year 2194, the children's parents call in Africa's most unusual detectives - the Ear, the Eye and the Arm - who have powers far beyond those of other human beings. The children must avoid the evils of the past, the technology of the future, and a motley assortment of criminals in order to return home safely.
