Faced with a debt that could destroy his family, Iddrisu must turn their farm and fortunes around. Over the course of a growing season, Iddrisu confronts both the tragedy and beauty of village life, and must finally choose between two very different futures. A fine example of Ghana’s burgeoning film scene.
