Life in Kumasi is more grand than anything Gloria has ever experienced. She joins a youth band at church something that allows her to pursue her great love, singing and Christine has even promised to teach her to read.
But Kumasi is also full of temptations the owner of a popular clothing shop encourages her to buy clothes on credit, and the smooth-talking Dr. Kusi offers Gloria rides in his red sports car. Eventually Gloria is betrayed by the people around her and is disillusioned by her new life. But in the end she decides who she can trust, and draws her own considerable inner resources to put the bad experiences behind her.
