Can the path of a farmer’s son and a rich man’s daughter cross in the name of love?Born to an affluence home, Nadia Buari’s undying love for Adjetey Anang continues to thrive in the face of opposition from her rich dad and big sister.
Stanley [Adjetey Anang] is considered a ‘poor’ person because he has a farmer and a house wife as his parents and not welcomed near Frankie [Nadia Buari]. Though they love each other, their opposing status as rich and poor do not qualify them to have a relationship, according to a strict money worshiping Ikwe [David Dontoh].

Synopsis:
Rain is a movie that will keep you at the edge of your seats. It is a love story that focuses on passion, emotion, and the affectionate involvement of two love birds that are tied together by destiny.
Every time it rains, there is remarkable story of a forbidden love, cultural difference, economic different and the sacrifices that are made in the face of human prejudice.

View: Photos From The Press Preview!

Stanley [Adjetey Anang] who came from a very poor background, opted to help Frankie [Nadia Buari] who lost her mother and was a victim of circumstances any time it rains.

Love and complexity complicated their arrangements and the pain that followed; one will wonder if indeed their story could end happily. As in all romantic relationship, tensions of day-to-day life, temptations [of infidelity], and differences in compatibility became the characteristics of their relationship. Two lovers who have gone their separate ways for years finally met and things became even more complicated.

‘Somewhere In Africa’ A Coup D’état Movie Premieres At National Theatre On July 30!

Somewhere In Africa
Somewhere In Africa

As a patriotic Ghanaian, I detest people who make comments that seem to suggest that they do not like Ghanaian movies. Comments such as ‘I don’t watch Ghanaian movies’ and ‘I only watch foreign movies’ and the rest of such worthless comments irritate me.

Nonetheless I think that people who make such comments can’t be blamed for their stand. This is because sometimes it’s very painful to watch some of these Ghanaian movies with horrific pictures, inappropriate languages, bad sound and lots of continuity inaccuracies.

So it’s somehow prudent to concur with the people who have constantly drummed into our ears their strong aversion for movies produced in Ghana. Just imagine sitting through the entire duration of a Ghanaian movie and only to realize that, the story line is similar to several Ghanaian movies you have already watched.

Don’t get it twisted, it’s not a similar story; it’s actually the same story twisted with different casts.

Least I forget, their story lines are about love: If it’s not about someone dreaming about a lady and goes to gallivant searching for the said lady [imagine this], then it would be a man who claims to love a girl yet goes to the ladies house to insult and beat the parents.
