Destiny of Lesser Animals

A dream deferred...a future never dreamed of. Desperate to return to America years after his deportation, Ghanian police inspector Boniface Koomsin finds that his newly acquired counterfeit passport has been stolen and embarks on a dangerous journey through Ghana to find it. His search is linked to a series of violent crimes, and he joins forces with a seasoned police veteran, who is still optimistic about his country. As their investigation brings them closer to the truth, Boniface finds he must choose between his dreams of a future abroad, escaping the ghosts of his past, and the reality of life in his homeland. Director Deron Albright crafts a poignant story of one man’s journey to find and understand the value of his own culture.

Directed by Deron Albright, 2011, USA/Ghana, crime/drama, 90 minutes, English subtitles
