In this drama, Kwaku (Thywill Abraham Kwaku Amenya), a Ghanian medical student in Italy, plumbs the depths of Italian racism as he searches the country from top to bottom for his missing brother Pummaro, or "Tomato", who has been working at a menial job to support him in medical school and to support his taking a residency in Canada. He has a lot of adventures among the multi-racial poor of Rome and Italy, and even has a brief but doomed interracial affair. Eventually he finds his brother's corpse in a German morgue and learns that his brother has succeeded in putting aside enough money for him to complete his medical education.
