Medical student Iddrisu is enjoying his life in Kumasi, Ghana, when his father s death turns his world upside down. As the eldest son, he is called to return to his family homestead to bury his father, only to discover family tensions between his mother and his father s junior wife who are not on speaking terms. A dramatic portrayal of the age-old conflict between the modern and the traditional, in which Iddrisu desires to move forward without betraying his upbringing; Nakom is a window into a culture and language rarely shown on screen.
