The difficulty Joffi faces in her first pregnancy is made worse by the petulant and selfish demands of her irate and uncompromising husband, Ekema. His laissez-faire attitude is profoundly challenged when he awakes one morning to find the world a very different place to the one he went to sleep in the night before.
