Based on a Ghanaian folktale, the play tells the story of Anowa, a beautiful girl who leaves behind her family and dancer-priestess destiny, to marry the handsome Kofi. The story reflects a familiar myth in many West African cultures and includes elements of pre-colonial Ghana as well as contemporary culture. The couple's relationship is progressively undermined by Kofi's greed for power and wealth, which he achieves by acquiring slaves.
