Elijah enjoys going for walks in the countryside but, one day, his girlfriend points out that he is the only black person they have seen all day.

Spurred into action, Elijah decides to start a walking group for black people. A motley bunch turn up - Boasy, a bird-watching Rastafarian; Vernon, an obese youth who is only joining the group to please his mother; and Elijah's brother, Malachi, who is doing it because, if he doesn't, his brother will stop subbing him.

The group enjoy some adventures until, one day, their car breaks down and a well-meaning man called Frank invites them into his house while they wait for a pick-up truck to arrive.

The next day, Frank calls Elijah to tell him that someone has stolen a valuable statuette from his cottage.
