As the impact of the First World War reaches the depths of the African Jungle, Charlie Allnut and Rose Sayer, a disreputable cockney mechanic and a spinster missionary, find themselves thrown together by chance. Deeply incompatible and fighting heat, malaria and bullets, as well as each other, they make their escape down the treacherous Ulanga river on the steamboat The African Queen.
