Juma is a poor fisherman who loves telling tales. Amina is the girl who loves to hear his stories. They long to be together, but Amina’s father, Ali, wants a better life for her. Ali finds this in yustus, a rich but self-serving young suitor.
Juma must put everything on the line to save their love, but he must sacrifice more than he bargained for in order to succeed.
