Kwame is a brilliant, nationalistic university professor, and Abena (Evelyn), a smart, dedicated elementary school teacher. The couple leaves the U.S. and lives near Accra for a year to adopt Kofi, a little boy who becomes the center of their life back home. But after divorcing, Kwame marries Layla, his passionate grad student with a shocking secret, and a reborn Evelyn enters interracial marriage to Brian. Caught between his parents' conflicts, a teenage Kofi strives to find himself while battling the dangerous voices in his mind.
