Will he be her husband for a week?
With his parents and friends reservations ringing in his head, Gambian born and bred hotelier, Fara Damba shoves his recently broken engagement behind him to trace his grandfather in a country he knows nothing about.

A chance meeting with Otasowie at the Registry office is all it takes to kick start a chain of events that will test their values.
