Synopsis

Micah Brown (Jay Ellis), an American English teacher thought his life in Ghana was going to be serene and self satisfying until he discovers his student, 14 year-old Tuigi (Ophelia Dzidzornu) is being forced to drop out of school. To atone for her father’s crime, she will become a Trokosi – Wife of the gods. A practice of religious sexual slavery. Locked in a battle between church and state, the past and the present, Micah is determined to help Tuigi have a life outside this tradition.
