Kojo is a taxi driver living and working in Ghana. Sleeping on his break he is awoken by a beautiful young travelling actress called Cynthia. She's in Ghana for the day and hires Kojo to show her some tourist attractions. The day ends with a sexual encounter and a reluctant promise from Cynthia to invite Kojo to England. 4 months later Kojo arrives on Cynthia's doorstep. Filled with ambitions of making money and for filling his dreams of succeeding as a poet, he soon realises that the grass isn't greener on the other side and people are not what they seem.
