Plot[edit]

The film takes place in Ghana during the colonial period. Aba Appiah, a woman born to a family of privileged settlers, falls in love with Joe Quansah, son of a simple fisherman. Aba's father, Kofi Appiah, a retired civil servant, is opposed to their marriage, which goes against his plans for his daughter, to whom he had already chosen a husband. This family conflict leads to unforeseen consequences.
