Love collides with social class and colonialism when Aba Appiah, born to privilege, falls in love with Joe Quansah, son of a fisherman. Her father, retired civil servant Kofi Appiah, has other plans for her, and seeks to block their marriage. The resulting conflict has complex and unexpected consequences. An interpretation of Romeo and Juliet set in colonial Ghana, Love Brewed in an African Pot depicts the tensions between tradition and modernity.
