When Coconut's father falls ill, his once carefree life is turned upside down. He feels helpless as he watches his mother struggle to keep the family afloat in such a difficult time. In an attempt to take his mind off all his troubles, Coconut joins his best friend Esi on a trip to the city. Suddenly, they're thrust into the middle of an adventure they never expected. When their journey presents Coconut with the chance to save his father, he has a tough decision to make: Can doing the wrong thing ever be the right choice if it will save someone you love?
