Nerissa is a sophisticated city girl, she comes to visit her father’s village and strikes up an unlikely friendship with a village boy Igwe. He is fascinated by the way she “paints” her face, smokes cigarettes and ability to quote Shakespeare. This is much to the annoyance of his possessive village girlfriend Toanchukwu. One day Toanchukwu catches Nerissa in Igwe’s mother’s hut and a fight between the two girls breaks out. Unfortunately a lantern catches fire and the hut is burnt to ashes. The elders dole out the punishment that Nerissa and Toanchukwu work together to rebuild the hut.
