what's it all about?

A young African prince (J.O.T. Agyeman) struggles to come to terms with the shame of having his kingdom sold to slave traders.

tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)

Prince Wenambe (J.O.T. Agyeman) hands the troubled Kingdom of Kotengbi over to Mansa Musa for protection, allowing him to win the throne from his father. But in order to ascend the throne, Wenambe must first find a wife.

He chooses the beautiful Soraya (Akofa E. Asiedu), but Wenambe then watches helplessly as Emperor Mansa Musa sells the kingdom off to slave traders.

Even the son borne by his new wife cannot lessen Wenambe's shame at losing the respect and sovereignty of his people. What unfolds is an epic tale about the Atlantic slave trade told from an African perspective.
