My worries will be over if only I can get to America! This was all Kwesi Asamane dreamed about while battling frustration and turmoil in West Africa. Beating impossible odds, he arrives in America on a partial college scholarship. But every inch of progress requires exhaustive battles, and idealistic views about America are replaced by cynicism. Mentally spent and alienated, he reaches for the simple life he once knew, but going back to Africa is no picnic. Expectations are unreasonable, and traces of assimilated culture suddenly surface and make him appear foreign to his people. He returns to America tormented by not being who he was until tragedy triggers a catharsis.
