Blitz Bazawule’s assured debut incorporates the richness of musical influences from his background as a hip-hop artist with mystical undercurrents. The film provides an intimate view of a Ghanaian family full of love yet overwhelmed by tragedy. Seven years after the accidental death of his bride at the hands of his brother Kojo, Kwabena appears with the promise of riches from illegal gold mining... and a thinly veiled desire for revenge.
