Upon returning to a privileged life in newly independent '60s Nigeria after their expensive English education, twins Olanna and Kainene make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the "revolutionary professor" Odenigbo, in the dusty university town of Nsukka, while Kainene takes over the family interests and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard, an English writer.
