Akaeze (Artus Frank) the Prince of Utonkon, Benue State is obsessed with Erimma (Nuella Njubigbo), the most beautiful woman in the community and wants to marry her. She however is not in the slightest bit interested in him, siting his filthy habits such as nose picking, spitting and incessant itching as the reasons why she would never agree to be his wife. Unperturbed Akaeze is determined and concocts a plan with his uncle to push Erimma’s father into being indebted to him so that he will have no choice but to offer up his daughter as a bride or go to prison. It remains to be seen if the plan will work.
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.
