Alice is from a poor family. One day she comes home from school to be told that her parents can no longer afford to educate her. Her mother tries to send her to her grandmother’s house but Alice is adamant that she wants to stay at home. Eventually Alice is persuaded to go to her uncle and his wife’s house as a house girl. They tell her mother that they will send her to school in the city, of course this falls apart pretty quickly as her uncle’s wife has her own plans for Alice.

We find out the Ron has been married to Joy for five years and that she helped to retain him with the help of a witchdoctor AKA Astrologist. Yes in this movie they were calling the witch doctor an astrologer! Life is pretty much hunky dory until Anita comes back o the scene declaring undying love for Ron and causing mayhem in the process… and so the drama begins!
The film starts with Mercy Johnson running down some stairs and accusing her mother of being a whore. She then returns with a gun. Huh? It looks like she is about to kill somebody. A few minutes in the credits begin to roll (they were not at the beginning.) I am thinking this film is trying to duplicate a Fred and Rosemary West type of scenario where the address becomes infamous as Cromwell Street was.
The story line in this film was just confusing and messed up. The basic premise is that a guy called Kofi played by Ofori meets a girl called Abena played by White over the telephone by calling a wrong number. They fall in love and start a telephone relationship. Her roommate Adwoa played by Appiah is jealous of her “perfect” (scoff scoff) relationship with this telephone guy and tries to muscle in and snatch him away.
