SAKAWA

by Ben Asamoah

synopsis

The film follows a young mother Ama who tries to become an internet con artist. A more seasoned scammer tries to teach her the craft, but she doesn't appear to have much of a knack for it. She looks in astonishment at an American street that she has conjured up on Google and wonders if she will able to scam a man. One Dollar, on the other hand, knows how to use his fake account to drive men crazy: they fall for the photo of a buxom woman—and his highpitched voice.
