Gloria journeys from her Ghanaian village, to the big city of Kumasi, to become a nanny/ housekeeper for Sistah Christine, a doctor. There she encounters challenging friends and charlatans, overcomes her illiteracy with the help of Christine, and has her eyes opened about AIDS, abortion and the larger world… as well as rocking out with her band (her once unlikely dream).
