Juma is a poor fisherman who loves telling tales. Amina is the girl who loves to hear his stories. The two are in love but cannot be together because her father wants her to have a better life than Juma can offer. Yet something happens that pushes Juma and Amina to find a way to be together before Ali marries her off to Yustus, a rich but self-serving young suitor. Juma must put everything on the line to save their love, but he must sacrifice more than he bargained for in order to succeed.
